cool map Tom, I'd like it to be a little more up to date, there are some wells that are being drilled near me that aren't on there yet.

That's just leases! When and if you start to get that many wells.... not good.

Very true jjsjigs. I don't understand how some of these people have signed leases living in neighborhoods where the homes are in close proximity to one another. I haven't had the time to research how it works either. But I just don't see how they could have a lease on a < 1/4 acre plot?

Could you be mixing up leases for gas extraction vs. lease for a well pad?

Bore hole is horizontal. It may go UNDER your property (requiring a lease) without having a surface well pad ON your property.

And the light comes on! Thanks pcray.....I'm not sure why I didn't think of that but I didn't. I even know they go horizontal but brain farted putting the two together. Even at that I guess it's just odd to me to see someone with a 150' x150' plot singing a gas lease...even if they have mineral rights.

Each pad may have 12 wells on it, each hole going over a mile horizontally in one direction. Combined they spread out in a "wheel spoke" fashion from the pad. So, a single pad essentially drains gas from everything within a mile radius in every direction.

Can you imagine how many properties you go under to do that? And you pretty much need a lease from every property owner, or else that particular well won't happen (leaving out a spoke).

In such situations with small plots, you can imagine the pressure from the neighbors? Any one of them on your "spoke" doesn't sign, and that particular bore hole doesn't happen, and none of them get royalties (the signing bonus is often a small part of the $). Yet they're gonna put the dang pad down anyway and run the other 11 spokes. All of the trouble with none of the $ all cause Jim Bob here won't sign. Yet, Jim Bob may have a tiny plot and it makes sense for him, as his royalties are miniscule.

Traffic, road wear, and tearing communities apart were and remain my biggest concerns.

The tearing communities apart that you speak of is real, and it is sad.

that's the exact reason the industry is pushing for forced pooling. To keep that from happening.

The biggest negative issue I have a hard time reconciling in my job is with the aesthetics, the view etc, they buy this perfect piece of land for the view and they get a compressor station next to them...but what if it would be a pig farm. still stinks, not great to look at. I think a lot of us are pretty naive in thinking that the world won't change on us part way through life. It happens.

There are a lot of people that want to work and would like their kids to be able to stay around home, that would seem to be a big upside to the industry.

Big industry forcing people to do things against their will, just great.
