The discussion on UNIT SIZE is interesting.  I think it worth mentioning that the reason the Lessee-Producer requests larger units is:He wants to hold more property longer without drilling.  The…Continue

"Some folks in the wet area of Ohio have done better, but $5000/acre bonus is in the ballpark with 20% royalty and as few deductions as as possible. When you get that far start reading the lease carefully and talk to your lawyer."

If the object is to lease only the Marcellus, the lease should only include the Marcellus shale and strata 100' above and below that formation.

Thanks for your information, they are offering 3300 per acre at 19 percent, this is the best offer in our area. Our land group's attorney is hesitant about promoting this possible opportunity, even though he stated the lease was fair.

Have you had any interaction from a company called Northeast Appalachia Land Service(NALS)?

Sam, Thank-you for your reply to my post under the Dale/Chesapeake Post. I must be learning something for everything you said was already going through my mind. Now it is just  deciding which is the best option to take. Of course there is a lot more to the lease than the few things I listed. I didn't want to post all the details in such a public place. You did read between the lines so well.

Thanks  again !

Sarah

Sam, I’ve read a bunch of your comments, both old and new, and if you’re slipping, then I know a lot of people who would love to slip up to your level. I’m with you, I’m definitely a paper rat, I love to dive into a twisted abstracted and wind my way through the maze – I suppose I’m just analytical like that. I’ve tried cases, but I’m fortunate enough to have 4 partners who are exceptional trial attorneys who love and live for trying cases. But I do enjoy working a case the whole way up to trial before handing it off to my partners, that way I can beat ‘em up on the way to court and they can beat ‘em up in court. Really, I just love discussing all of these gas issues with everyone. I’m really excited to be in the middle of (hopefully the beginning of) all of this gas activity so I can do more and more of what I love every day. I look forward to your future comments.
