Our hunting camp signed a gas lease with East in July.We were to be paid in 90 days.At 90 days we recieved a letter that they were unfortunatly unable to pay us because thier partnership with another company fell through.They stated we be able to get our lease back if we wanted it.I recieved another letter from them in Feb. stating the same thing.That nothing has significantly changed.
In the mean time fortua energy has offered us a lease,for 1000$ an acre,much less then the 2300$ from East.Also the protection addendums we have in the East lease are not included.Our camp is in Tioga county,I was wondering if anyone has any other info.about what is going,on with east.or any other help.We will not accept the Fortua lease,as it is because of the absence of the landowner protection addendums.Any help will be appreciated.

$ 1000.00 Per acre seems very low. If I were you i would hold out for more. And DON'T give up your Addendums. Gas prices are way down now but they will be back. Wait it out. What royalties were they offering with that?

Don't settle for anything less than 15%. No one I know has. Get a thousand offer, get your addendums in it, get a lawyer (one who deals with this stuff) and ask around with your neighbors to see what they got. What the company says is usually a half truth.....do your homework!!!!
