First time poster. If this isn't allowed on this forum, I understand. My sister and I have 127 acres, Cove District, Barbour county with a year remaining on a lease from Mountaineer Keystone (now Arsenal)....... we are interested in just selling our stake once and for all. Have NO idea who to contact about this, and have no idea whether Arsenal will make a renewal offer within a year, although they've been active lately, with a major pipeline passing about a half-mile from my property and 3 Marcellus pads permitted all within 2 miles. Thanks!
There are plenty of companies who will broker a sale and I don't have any background on how good or bad each company is, but I have seen where the lessee is often interested in purchasing the mineral rights. With the activity in your area, I suggest you make a call to Arsenal and see if they have an interest. IN ANY CASE, shop around. My experience with land agents in general is believe half of what you see and none of what you hear. A good oil and gas attorney would be worth the cost.
