Marcellus Shale: Oil & Gas Leases

Unfortunately, unrepresented landowners fall victim to unfair natural gas leases heavily slanted in favor of out-of-state corporate interests. The sad truth is that landowners and residents have suffered serious losses because of oil and gas policies, and many individuals have unwittingly forfeited their rights against oil and gas companies in lease agreements.
