you either take their offer to sell your mineral rights or they will just drill anyway if a certain percent of people do sell their rights. Heard tharp was in on it. 12 cents a square foot for your property, for the mineral rights . sounds a little low to me. they are directional drilling under the city limits. get ready for sinkholes....

they can do it, it's called either imminent domain or something else. but I read the letter. they said if 63 percent I think it was, sold their rights they could take your rights without even paying for them. they are giving you a choice of selling the rights or them just taking them. someone I know has 1200 square foot of property = 1200.00 dollars that's it. I think they have the leverage because most of the investors already own most of the land therefore reaching the 63 percent mark pretty easy.---- they're crooks. It's just the little plots of land in between that are in the way of drilling , and they will drill with or without you selling the rights. says so in the legal papers. it's a take the cash or we'll drill anyway situation.

You guys aren't going to believe this, but I'm gonna tell you anyway. They're mining it, not drilling...they're looking around the world for a 16' casing pipe for the hole...the north bay of the "shop" is where they are going to perforate from. The complex northeast across the road is where they workers will live in the apartments. This business doesn't care about Fredonia or they're employees, why don't you think they haven't told anyone anything. They're going to hit gas around 300-500 feet and if that doesn't stop them they'll hit the Bartlesville aquifer and flood the area with salt water. Theres no way to stop anything from happening with that big of a whole in the ground, a 8 inch whole is easier to plug up than a 16' hole...And what pipeline are you talking about?

Some one needs to call the state senator and get Topeka involved. Sounds like this outfit is hitting the small towns because the people dont have the money to fight back. Fredonia leaders should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this to happen. Not only did they screw their own citizens, they are creating an environmental disaster right beneath everyones feet. And those that sold off their land to these guys will move out of the area rich people. I think everyone knows who I am talking about.

they are buying mineral rights about 3/4 of a mile east of there - why? they want the rights to the property just east of north 2nd street on southside of Fillmore street. What do you mean mining it?

It is mining! I delivered some material out there for the living quarters and I ask what they was doing. The guy in charge told me just what yes sir posted. They will dig a hole around 1500 feet Deep 16 feet around, then lower down digging equipment and start mining the oil out of the shell.As for The pipe line its going through the eastern part of wilson county, but it follows right beside the existing lines that are already there so the have the right of way.

so they are going to make mine shafts? or just suck the oil out of the shale?

at what cost to the enviroment? just think what possibly could go wrong. Not much public info is being let out about it. Kinda like lafarge's waste dump. where is there information about the planned project the public can see exactly what is planned? Mining under the city limits sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. Too much going on the public is not aware of. What are the risks ? Where are the diagrams we can look at? Sounds like a possible superfund disaster site to me ? Water table contamination, public safety, I bet it bites them in the ass....at our expense! Just wait... something bad will happen. Wanna bet? We have the right to know! Never heard of this type of operation before.

Like other environmental pollutants, there is some uncertainty about the magnitude of radon health risks. However, we know more about radon risks than risks from most other cancer-causing substances. This is because estimates of radon risks are based on studies of cancer in humans (underground miners).

Most of what is said here is 100% wrong. yes they will lower a drilling platform down and then drill horizontal into the oil. there will be no ground water impact nor any enviro impact. there is more issues on the surface wells and old pump ajacks now in the area than they will have. I hear they bougt several local houses already and also are building the apartments so the so caled miners have a place to stay however they still have rooms at the local hotels and other houses are rented. I have met these guys and they do care about the town and care about what they are doing. I think you should go to the front door and ask for the big guy there and he will tell you the truth. How do I know- Because they have used my company to do work for them and they are honest guys. They will be hiring locals at good pay with benefits, the law oversee's them and what they do so maybe we should ask or at least cut them some slack because I dont see any one else coming to the area.

If they were honest they wouldnt be forcing people to sell their mineral rights for pennies on the dollar. No oil company is honest.
