It was actually a road built by another company 6 years ago to get to a well site on someone else's property. The road was 388 rods and I wouldn't neccessarily call it an all weather road. It's only 15 feet wide with scoria for surfacing. I would assume they would widen it, provided they get a producing well.
The damage agreement for the road I had with the other company specifically says the road is to be used only to go the well that was drilled 6 years ago and has been on TA status for over 2 years. The company that now may want to use the road bought the previous company about 2 1/2 years ago. My attorney says the agreement would have to be honored by todays company.
As long as they are drilling on my land I don't want to offer too much resistance but would like whatever fee is reasonable.
Is the $1.00 per linear foot a one time deal or is it to be paid yearly?
