I’m a newbie. Hate that because i can’t find didley about Westmoreland County, PA. Five of my relatives inherited my grandparents’ small, three parcels of non-contiguous land in New Kensington, Pa, that is less than an acre. A landman has offered us a signing bonus of $3000 “per net acre,” and 17% royalty for “non- surface paid-up” lease agreement. I’m positive no one else in this area has an offer, but it it just a matter of time. As of now, they’ve only received an interest survey.
Can’t find anything on this area, but it appears to be part of the “Porter” well. How can i find out if the offer is okay? Shouldn’t i be concerned about how drilling for oil and natural gas impacts the residents in this area?
