Oil and Gas Leases

Many property owners are approached by leasing agents requesting the lease of your property for a Marcellus or Utica shale oil and gas lease.  The per acre bonus payments are now sizeable.  Without an experienced attorney on your side you will be presented with a standard lease containing provisions that will not be in your best interest.  Contact Attorney Bruce J. May to review any proposed lease so he can recommend provisions that will maximize your royalties and minimize the impact on your land.  Fracking involves chemicals and use of huge amounts of water.  Be sure your rights are protected with carefully negotiated agreements.
