Free Information on Marcellus Shale, Gas Leases, and Gas Royalties in Washington County: Preparing for the “NEW” Gold Rush.

The flurry of activity and potential financial windfalls surrounding Marcellus Shale and natural gas reserves may be exciting for landowners, but leasing and drilling processes can be confusing and may lead to unintended consequences.

If you own land in Southwestern Pennsylvania, you already may have been approached to lease your property for natural gas exploration. But before you sign on the dotted line, you should gather and understand completely the legal, financial, and environmental implications for you and your neighbors.

A financial windfall is a welcome event, but it takes planning to handle it responsibly. As gas royalties pour in, it’s time to seek professional financial advice.

We at H Financial understand the problems facing farmers and landowners who come into newfound wealth. Garrett, whose family owned a farm in West Alexander, has insight into the problems facing landowners and can give advice on tax and estate planning as well as inheritance issues.
