Williams is rumored to be meeting on April 22 to formulate their "gameplan" for landowners in Lycoming county. More competition = more money. After speaking to a landman representing Williams, they are searching for tracts of 320 contiguous acres for development. Some offers from them are allegedly anywhere from 4000/ acre 18% to 5500/ acre 20% royalty. Justin McCarthy with Thomas Development Corp. (412) 926-3315 is representing Williams in this area for anyone interested. The royalty rate seems close but the bonus payments seems to be about half of what fair market should be. Every day brings new developments in the Marcellus. To anyone with half a brain - DON'T GIVE YOUR PROPETY AWAY.
