I am the lone hold-out in my development in North Richland Hills, TX; I would not lease my mineral rights to Chesapeake. Now they are planning to put a horizontal line 116’ from my property. They have requested an exception with the RRC, and I have filed a protest. I understand they have the right to develop their leases, but does that give them the right to drain from my property without permission? I don’t have any experience with this. Do I have a chance of fighting the exception? What happens to my mineral rights if Chesapeake gets permission to proceed? Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks. Allan Ohman
