Gas drilling is coming to Otsego County. Gas companies have contacted hundreds of landowners hoping to have them sign a company gas lease, which offers little protection and poor compensation to the landowner. Signing such a lease is a BIG mistake!
The alternative is to form a landowner's association that will have enough clout to force the gas companies to adhere to rigorous proceedures in order to protect our water supplies, the environment, and the natural beauty of this area.
Doing nothing risks being integrated into an existing drilling unit, at which point your choices will be limited. For more information on compulsory integration, please see Landowner's Information link above.
