Utica Shale Bringing Increased Dollar Offerings For Leasing

“HOW TO GET A FAIR DEAL”

DO:
• Remember every provision of a lease is negotiable when you know what and how to ask.
• Require that a Lease Surrender document be submitted to you (lease owner) within 2 months of expiration or cancellation of a lease.
• Require surface damage provisions beyond growing crops and other resources.
• Require plat map approval for well, tank, access road and pipeline sites before drilling or construction begins … especially for land features needing protection.
• Double check pooling or unitization provisions with whoever is representing your interests.

DON’T:
• Lease before you look.
• Forget to get the going rate (all numbers mentioned) for OGM’s in your area in writing to better understand the value of your acreage … checking multiples sources.
• Forget that you must initial all changes added and stricken in the lease or the changes will not be enforceable.

These are a “few” of the DO’s and DON’Ts Group members are made aware of before signing a lease document. Questions are expected. Wheeling and dealing on one’s own is no safer than jumping into a jet cockpit and taking off with no lessons. O&G companies have had years of experience negotiating leases. Few individuals have, especially when considering modern technology has made multiple shale plays possible from a single wellpad. Times have changed. Across the entire Marcellus/Utica region the formation of Group Leasing has become the “norm” … a sound strategy to make the most of and protect what we have.

Are you on board?
>>Across this region the lull we’ve experienced in
O & G leasing and related contracts is over. Clumps of
townships are being negotiated for. Each company has its own favorite area because they’re leary of competing against each other. It ruins their profit margins!
4-County Landowners Group is all about profit margins …
OUR OWN.

Harriett was born March 24, 1925 in Hornell the third of four daughters of John and Harriett (Felix) Hubert. She graduated from Hornell High School and in April of 1943 married her husband Richard. Following his military service during World War II they would make their home in Wellsville for 67 years until his death in 1996.

For many summers Harriett played golf with friends and family. She was a longtime member of the Wellsville Country Club but would achieve that coveted prize, a hole-in-one, in East Aurora. She was an avid reader and had enjoyed knitting since she was a teenager. Many newborns have left Jones Memorial Hospital wearing one of Harriett's knit caps. She frequently participated in the hospital's annual Country Fair as a member of the Hemlock Twig. As a 30 year member of the Monday Club, she regularly joined with members for their weekly meetings. Harriett was a member of the United Church of Christ in Wellsville since shortly after she and her husband moved to Wellsville.

Harriett is survived by her four children, Richard of Kissimmee, Florida, Tom of Cuba, Jeff and his wife Jane of Cuba, and Carol also of Cuba. Harriett's grandchildren include Sarah of Cuba, Rebecca of St. Petersburg, Florida, Justin and his wife Brittany of Allegany, and their son Evan who has not yet celebrated his first birthday. Also surviving Harriett are her sisters, Betty of Hornell, Rose of Bath as well as several nieces and nephews.

Besides her husband, Harriett was predeceased by her sister Lucille, her brother in law, Jack Ordway, husband of Rose and dear friends, Phyllis Burrows of Wellsville and Beverly Peck of Lahaina, Hawaii.

Harriett's family would like to express its gratitude to the very special Mary, Tina, Maria, Cindy, Lori and Nancy for the kindness and attention given their mother during her last days.

Friends are invited to call on Tuesday, November 11 from 5:00 to 8:00 pm at the J. W. Embser Sons Funeral Home Inc. in Wellsville.

Wildcat Park Dam Removed

Wildcat Park Dam Removed


In October, the McKean County Conservation District, partnering with Wildcat Park, the Ohio River Basin Fish Habitat Partnership, PA DEP, and the PA Fish & Boat Commission, removed the dam on Twomile Run in Wildcat Park near Ludlow. 

Funding for the project was provided through grants from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Patagonia.

The dam consisted of wood planks with iron framing and concrete footings and was installed around 1936 to create a “swimming pool” immediately upstream of a covered bridge. The swimming hole had filled in with sediment and according to the park officials had become a maintenance issue and potential liability concern. For the past several years, the iron framing for the dam has acted as a “trap” catching logs, sticks and other debris during high flows and actually causes a nearby pavilion to flood. 

From a fisheries standpoint, the dam created a number of concerns. The dam had a pooling effect, trapping large amounts of sediment which cover the natural streambed, thus diminishing habitat for aquatic insects: the primary food source for trout. During periods of low flow associated with the hot summer months, the pool contributed to undesirable warming and provided little cover for trout and other fish species. Also of concern was the impediment the dam had on migrating native brook trout searching for potential brood waters.

In the spring of 2015, the Conservation District in partnership with the PA Fish & Boat Commission will begin the planning stage where specific in-stream and riparian habitat improvements will be designed, construction contracts developed, and construction started. This phase may possibly include the planning of a handicap accessible fishing site in cooperation with the USDA Allegheny National Forest. 

Anticipated outcomes from the project include improved trout fishery, positive economic impact for the park and local community, increased park visitation, diminished maintenance cost and diminished liability potential.

I’m an evangelical minister. I now support the LGBT community — and the church should, too

I’m an evangelical minister. I now support the LGBT community — and the church should, too

Too many Christians stayed silent during the Holocaust and civil rights movement.

 

Washington Post

 For Christians, the LGBT debate has always been framed as a question of sexual ethics. Our argument has centered on six or seven biblical passages that appear to mention homosexuality negatively or appear to establish a heterosexual norm: the sin of Sodom, the laws of Leviticus and the list of “the unrighteous” in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. For most of my career, these ideas formed the foundation of my views and teachings as an evangelical minister and professor of Christian ethics. I co-authored a popular textbook that stated this position flatly: “Homosexual conduct is one form of sexual expression that falls outside the will of God.” I wasn’t mean about it. But I said it.

In recent years, my moral position has shifted. It has dawned on me with shocking force that homosexuality is not primarily an issue of Christian sexual ethics. It’s primarily an issue of human suffering. With that realization, I have now made the radical decision to stand in solidarity with the LGBT community. Read more...

Cold weather is on its way back to the region, and the state’s Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is now open to help eligible residents with home heating costs.

LIHEAP helps low-income people pay their heating bills through home energy assistance grants, which are based on household income, family size, type of heating fuel and region. The program also provides crisis grants to individuals and families in the event of a heating emergency, including broken heating equipment or leaking lines that must be fixed or replaced, lack of fuel, termination of utility service or danger of being without fuel or of having utility service terminated. In most counties, assistance with home heating crisis situations is available 24 hours a day.

Great News for Natural Gas Customers in Potter County

UGI Utilities Inc. has become the first natural gas utility in Pennsylvania to directly connect its natural gas distribution system with a Utica Shale well. The Utica Shale formation is an even larger resource of natural gas than Marcellus Shale. The interconnection links a Utica Shale well and two Marcellus Shale wells located in northern Tioga County to a UGI high-pressure pipeline. The project is expected to increase the available supply of natural gas for UGI customers in Tioga and Potter counties. For more information, click here

UGI Is First Gas Utility in PA with Direct Connection to Utica Shale

UGI Is First Gas Utility in PA with Direct Connection to Utica Shale

UGI Utilities, Inc. has become the first natural gas utility in Pennsylvania to directly connect its natural gas distribution system with a Utica Shale well.

This historic direct interconnection of a Utica Shale well with a utility system is the result of a partnership between UGI and Shell Western Exploration & Production, Inc., a division of Shell Oil. The interconnection links a Utica Shale well and two Marcellus Shale wells located in northern Tioga County to a UGI high pressure pipeline.

The UGI Utica Shale connection project also included construction of a new meter / regulator station. The project will increase available supply of natural gas for UGI customers in Tioga and Potter Counties.

The interconnection with the Shell wells is designed to provide up to 14,000 dekatherms of natural gas per day into UGI’s system. The annual available supply of natural gas from these wells will be enough to provide the needs of more than 50,000 homes in UGI’s service area.

According to United States Geological Survey estimates, the Utica Shale – located thousands of feet under the Marcellus Shale formation — contains potential supplies of some 38 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, 208 million barrels of natural gas liquids, and about 940 million barrels of crude oil, making it an even larger resource than the Marcellus Shale formation.

Utica Shale underlies significant portions of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, New York in the U.S, as well as Quebec Province in Canada. In Pennsylvania, the Utica Shale is found 10,000 feet or more below ground. The Utica Shale formation is named for the town in upstate New York where it was first identified in the 1840s.

“UGI continues to explore opportunities to bring affordable, local natural gas to our customers throughout Pennsylvania,” Kelly Beaver, UGI vice president of supply, said. “More than 70 percent of the natural gas we deliver through our system is produced in the Marcellus Shale region. We are pleased to add volumes of lower-cost Utica Shale natural gas to our portfolio as another supply source.

UGI Utilities has headquarters in Reading, Pennsylvania and serves 660,000 customers in 45 Pennsylvania counties and one county in Maryland.

Think About It

Opinions

It seems that everyone has an opinion about something, even if they don't know anything about the subject. I've often wondered how any one person can have so many opinions about so many different subjects and feel that their opinion is the only right one. Am I missing something?

Sometimes your opinion will get you into trouble. If you don't believe me look at the news reports where people have been beat up at a sporting event or someone was killed in a road rage incident. To defend one's opinion, some have resorted to violence. I have to wonder if it's all worth it, being right that is.

There are things in this world that we need to stand for, but I don't think that opinions are one of them. Opinions change, sometimes as we get older, and sometimes because we get smarter. I've learned that there are something’s that I'd die for, but others I wouldn't. It's not that I don't have opinions about things, it just that I've learned in the scope of eternity they're only opinions and they don't matter. In my correctness I can do a lot of damage in the lives of others and in the Kingdom of God. In thinking that I’m right I can actually turn people away from the very thing I want them to believe. When only my opinion matters, I have no time for the opinion of others.

Your world and mine is being bombarded with opinion. We call it news, but in many cases it's opinion spun into news. Want to know what to believe? Be careful, what you hold to be true may in fact only be the compiled opinions of a view whose agenda has more to do with them then it does with you.

The Bible is one of those things that people have staked their lives upon. For them it wasn't opinion, it was truth. Would you die for your opinion, if you wouldn't then why push it upon others? Think about it.
