Shale gas leasing workshop Wednesday

Another in a series of educational workshops on issues related to shale gas development is scheduled for 2-4 pm on Wednesday, Aug. 19, at the F. W. Gunzburger County Office Building auditorium in Coudersport.

It’s titled “Land Management and Lease Options” and is being presented by Penn State Extension. The workshop will be of particular interest to property owners who are leasing drilling rights or have an interest in leasing, but it’s open to all. Those planning to attend are asked to register by calling 570-320-4429.

Issues to be discussed include lease terms and renewal options, how to manage shale gas drilling’s impact on surface property, and industry trends and developments that could affect leases.

Speakers will be Dan Brockett, educator from Penn State Extension’s Marcellus Education Team, and Bud Shuffstall, senior oil, gas, and mineral officer at Northwest Savings Bank.
