Well folks here it it plain and simple(Do you stand for your morals or do you do what everyone has already done.Its my last stand.Wells on both sides all land around sighed so what would the general population do.Would you not sigh and deal with it all for nothing or would you sigh because you feel you have no choice.Not happy with my options.Melvin p Wyoming county.

Thats a VERY bad idea from anyones viewpoint.

5 wells within sight of the house I grew up in and where my family still lives, they are shallow wells though. It's absolute #$% during the drill/frack process, but much better once the wells are in and producing, the trucks leave, the pad shrinks, the noise stops, etc. You're left with some pipes sticking out of the ground and some condensate tanks, maybe a half acre fence around it all, and a truck visits it now and then. For the shallow wells that took about a year per site to get to that point, but I think it's more like 4-6 years for Marcellus due to being up to 12 wells per site (and then they start a new site a mile down the road). So about all I can say is that I feel for ya.

You can always stand by your morals. There's nothing wrong with that at all. But, by you not signing a lease agreement, then you inturn affect the unitization map of your neighbors. Meaning, they will receive less acreage if you don't sign because drilling will not take place under your property. You can always demand in a lease agreement that no construction of any kind take place on your lands. I would recommend that you make sure they limit the drilling of legs under your property to only Marcellus Shale. Furthermore, if a company that you're going to lease with needs pipelines then be sure to work with them. They have to bring the product to market and the reclaimation process is excellent. The ship is here, so get on it before it sets sails.

You make the choice, that's what I would do.

I'd hire a lawyer, fight for the most I could get, then rent out the place and move the hell out of there.
for the next 20 years, there will be wells drilled EVERYWHERE in the marcellus region. the truck traffic, noise, migrant workers, and all the associated BS will only get worse.

welcome to PA!!

Bikerfish,

The picture you posted is of vertical gas fields (most likely in the Badlands) and is not an accurate depiction of horizontal drill sites.

@ Melvin,
I wouldn't lease my land but that's me. A friend of mine was at a Pirate game recently sitting in front of some drillers who mouthed off the whole game about how greedy and stupid PA residents are, how the only people that will get rich from this are the drillers, how they would never move their families here because by the time they are done, PA will no longer be fit to live in. There was more but you get the idea. I don't envy your decision but to say hey, the wells are here let's embrace it is, I think, short-sighted and an easy way out. It's a lot harder to stand up for what you believe in than to "do what everyone else is doing". The drillers have the money and Corbett but you still have your morals. Good luck w/ whatever you decide to do!

Hey all, newly registered but lurking for over a year. I am a geologist and have been involved with all methods of drilling for years now. Had to comment when people talk about explosives! I know this was tongue in cheek but not a good idea.
