Shale Gas: Already Leased? What Are My Options?

Natural gas drillers have been producing the fuel from "conventional" gas reservoirs for over 150 years. New shale gas production techniques have opened much wider areas for exploration, including the Marcellus, Utica, and Upper Devonian Shale formations. Many landowners in Western Pennsylvania may have their property leased for the purposes of conventional gas production, but may be approached to have their lease amended in order to meet unit size standards or other conditions of unconventional shale gas production. This Workshop is intended to help landowners under lease to understand what their options might be if shale gas production is going to occur.
