NC Attorney General’s Office Issues Landowner Protection Report

The Consumer Protection Division of the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office recently released the consumer protection section of the DENR shale gas study. We support many of the reports’ findings and recommendations, but we do suggest modifications to some and substantial changes to a few. For details, please read our letter to the Division.

Gas leases and North Carolina landowners

Farmers and rural landowners in this area of North Carolina are being approached to sell rights to companies that want to tap the natural gas deposits that may lie in the shale below their land. If you are approached about leasing the mineral rights to your land, consult with a lawyer before signing the contract.
