Resources for Learning about Oil & Gas Leasing

Citizens Shale Advisors supports drilling and production when they are done with the proper respect for the land and a fair royalty is offered. We believe that the industry needs proper, knowledgeable, private oversight to prevent the many aspects of drilling that can go wrong. Each week we learn of another unfortunate incident that could have been prevented and is usually irreversible.

Please review the information below not as our statements but as concerns of hazards and the landowners’ frustration or lack of satisfaction with the industry response to the problems. These resources illustrate what can happen when oil and gas production is based on the standard industry lease/contract. If promises made to prevent these problems are not written properly into the lease then they are meaningless words, and you must accept the consequences of the lease.
