Our true coalition strength is flexed through contiguous acres.  More than just land to drill, the industry also needs “Right Of Way” to get the gas out, which is why contiguous acreage is what they are most interested in.  These regional meetings are designed to help us fill in your regional land blocks giving YOU greater negotiation power when the time comes.
