Just recently started to receive royalty check for a parcel in the southern portion of Greene County, PA. I am looking to verify acreage values associated with each well. Went to the PA DEP website and found the permit application for the wells however the unit acreage number varies greatly from the mineral tract acreage that was shown on the permits for each well. Additionally, the acreage number I got from the producer regarding my acreage was quite different from what I know it to be.
How are these numbers derived? Are they defining some distance away from the well pipe itself as the area involved in that particular well or what? That seems to be the only math that could possible make any of these numbers make sense.
