"Eventually, coal inventory will exldpoe and the coal miners will be mining at a loss, also"...Good point henry and considering that the Illinois coal fields are less than 100 miles away from where I live, I missed that point entirely...The state of Illinois has less than 30 mines at work it seems and they used to have hundreds...Missouri has only 2 mines left out of the 200 or so that used to be active...I see that federal tax dollars are being used to reclaim mines that closed from '77 and earlier...


My suggestion to everyone who has not signed a lease yet is to not

even consider signing one unless its for $15000 an acre. Slow down

take your time. There have been so many leases done already that it

could take many years to get a well, so just wait it out and get

the mega bucks like some have. Don't listen to any landman, deal

with the companys direct. So far, there has been only one landman

on this blog with any integrety.

Basic math

Leases are not supposed to be regulated as long as they meet the statute of frauds. That is why they call it a free market. The person who keeps making complaints has no conception of what a free market is and is so uneducated it is beyond the pale of belief. She is mad because she did not receive the same person as Joe Blow across town.

I am sure now I will be threatened by this obviously very disturbed person.

I have seen very little about drilling plans in SW FTW, specificly the Wedgewood area. Fliers have gone around this past weekend from our Neighborhood Association and meetings are scheduled Wed. and Thurs. evenings to discuss lease proposal being sent out. I personally have not seen a lease proposal, but I live in the area identified in the NA's flier. Do you have any info on planned activity, who the players may be in our area, and the extent of the lateral drilling affecting those of us who live in the middle of residential subburbia. Thanks for any comments.


How about the contractors who buy houses, put in new carpet, double the price, thus they sit empty so overpriced, and our little neighborhood is going down down. It's a pity!

Some areas of town have seen home values increase in the past few years. Do the people who sold their homes sit at home & cry about how people have taken advantage of them for buying their house for $100,000 when they are now worth $200,00? How about the people who buy houses for cash whose signs you see all over town? Shouldn't we worry about people selling their houses for too little money? Who will protect us against our own stupidity if we can't get the government to do it?

What this means to hundreds of us is that lease's are unregulated.
so "Buyer Beware" has a new meaning in urban drilling.
