QuoteThis is why I earlier suggested a threat . . in advance. This situation does not sound to me like a good candidate to be the test case. But surely I could be in error on this.I agree this is probably not the best case for "the" case due to the fact we are leased with the same company as the property owner of the well. The best case would probably be someone who is unleased or is leased to another company. In that event, the other company would fight for their leased gas.A question though, a representative from Petroleum Dev't Corp actually said to my husband that we can't guarantee we are not going to take your gas, but you can't prove it. They did quote the Texas case... Could we prove somehow they are taking gas. I know the rule of capture history has something to do with water. Anyway to test storm water running into sewerage dye is used. It's a shame we can't put a tracer in our gas at the Marcellus level. Could we get a seismic test done ourselves to see where the successful fraccing was done? How could you PROVE it??

Brownswissmomma,When the drilling crew was drilling the well were you angry, upset, and complaining to them because of the drilling?Your story sounds like they are trying to get revenge on you. One of my neighbors did that stuff and they excluded his property from the production unit! His complaining started with the pipeline ROW and then included everything else they did from then on! They were not ever even on his property.
