I have a section available for leasing right next to your friends in 16N8W 22 and JW Operating just told me they were not leasing around this area now. Empressa said that they were not leasing either but if your friend received an offer, they must be. Interesting how Empressa would be making an offer on section 20 and not 22. We shall see.
We really don't know that answer. We are attending a meeting next week with Will Drill and we'll hopefully know more then. We have done lots of research but, still have lots of questions. One being, if they drill, we want to be compensated for all the trees that are taken down. Again, we really haven't found a lot of answers to the "forced" drilling. We are in R8W - T6N #35. And, who knows why some people are approached and some aren't. The landowners that are right next to us signed with Chesapeake back in September '08. Who knows??
We have land in Bienville Parish but we already have wells all over our land. They are drilling a horizontal on our property along with a verticle well in the same section.

Our land that is not leased is in Sugar Creek 255 acres. Petrohawk has been drilling near there for over 3 years in Terryville field....so we are just waiting to sign until the right offer comes along.
They will come around soon and offer the right amount...we just have to be patient.
Maybe he was just seeing what type of reaction he could get. He never confirmed my email and never contacted me. I don't put much stock into those types of posts. But just for the heck of it I sent our information. You see where it got me...nowhere city!
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
