My wife and I have 93 acres that has been under lease since 1975 with a gas well that is still producing royalties. We have been approached by the energy company that currently owns the lease. They want to put a Utica Shale well on our property . What are my rights as far as placement of the well, use of my land, water and right of way .
The current lease makes very little reference to well placement, water useage, roadways to and from the well as well as no reference tto horizontal drilling.
