I think that forced pooling is an option all O&G's should have. If you are in the middle of a 400 acre production unit and you own 30 acres blocking access to the other leased landowners land on the other side of you, then the O&G should have the right to drill under you and put you in that pool. Why, because you are denying the other leased landowners the right to a royalty check! The majority of landowners in a production unit should always rule!
...The majority of landowners ... should always rule!
Come on JEB, what are you smoking? That's the biggest line of bull, last i knew OUR land was OUR land, just cause the gas is there dosn't give anybody the right to take it from us cause of a majority rule. And IF somebody chooses to not lease that's THEIR choice not YOURS or anybody elses. Sorry JETHRO beat you to it cause i know you will have a reply to this crap, i think his WAVE just drowned him.

What you don't seem to understand Jeb is that i AM a POOR farmer who has sold timber, stone etc to KEEP this LAND. AND HAVE WORKED 24/7 365 to keep this land. We signed the lease to pay the taxes and guess what they drilled, so if this new found wealth comes so be it. I won't send you the sweat off my brow let alone any royalty, we have worked our butts off to keep what we have. Again if someone chooses not to lease that's their choice, and they shouldn't be forced to do anything that they don't agree with. A member, that's now retired, once asked you to meet at the mailbox and discuss things over a cup of coffee, i'll give you that same offer. I'll bet you won't take me up on it, how do those neighbors that you talked into signing rows get along with you now? Keep spewing your bull, there are still enough older members that can and will still call it like it is.
