On January 25th, Senate Bill 383 was introduced in the WV Legislature. If passed, this bill will effectively terminate ALL negotiating power that a mineral owner has. This bill GIVES the gas companies the right to pool as long as they have a lease.

As many mineral owners know there are many leases that do not allow for forced pooling and therefore the company must come and renegotiate to get pooling in these old leases. If this bill is passed these companies NO LONGER have to do that. As long as they have a lease then they are AUTOMATICALLY granted pooling rights, taking negotiation completely off the table.

Please take a moment and contact your representative TODAY and let them know that Senate Bill 383 is TERRIBLE for West Virginians!

Sponsors of this bill are Boso, Ferns and Maynard. Bill referred to Energy Committee; then to Judiciary. Link to list of Senators:
