Welcome to GMS.com and the Marion County, WV group. This is a forum designed to help educate others about the Marcellus Shale Play Gas industry, and I think it's safe to say, we all wish we had known more about it before we signed leases.
But even if you are already signed, there is still so much to learn and be vigilant about as the industry rolls along. Currently there is an issue about "forced pooling" in our legislation that we all must keep out of WV.

This is a forum that will help you with that. Never hesitate to involve yourself in the forums that interest you, communication is the key to staying ahead. ...and give us time, someone will try their best to answer your questions if they can.
