Thanks for the reply, I probably should have read your reply earlier. I did draw a big x through that clause and initial it. Does that mean I can add the whole lease later?
What the land man said was they got the Marcelus out of the Triad bankruptcy and intend on drilling that first. I figure there has to be a possibility they will never get around to drilling the lease I signed with them. 5 years plus another 5 for a price. Apparently a Falcon or something close to that had a deep lease they never used in the records. Two lawyers, one my real estate closing one said I should get it removed but it seems B+B was able to figure out it was extinct.
The triad lease is pretty close to no paying quantities, The B+b guy said it needs 2 years no payments to meet the definition. Right or wrong he is the only guy that gave me a straight answer. I sort of figure if they can't maintain a meter that regurlarly makes a chart that might count. They have at least got it to work better lately but I doubt they are estimating when the paper tangles up.
I realize they have to deal with me individually but did not think signing something like that would make life stress free.
