When Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton, D-Ithaca, asked about "persistent rumors" in Albany that the state may be working on some sort of hydrofracking pilot program in the Southern Tier before the DEC's permitting guidelines are in place, Martens said that's not the case."I'm not aware of the rumor, and I can not conceive of any mechanism that would allow us to go forward with a pilot outside of our (permitting guideline) process," (Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joe) Martens said. "You can lay your ears to rest."

I know that, but it's that in between period I don't want to deal with. Nor do I want to give them unfettered access to our land by contract. Everyone around me has signed anyway, many under the impression you get more money if they drill on your land, so there's little incentive for us to. I can negotiate 20% royalties and per acre on a "non development" lease just as easily.But I have to confess, there is a glitch in our deed from the 1930's regarding our mineral rights leaving us only owning a portion of said royalties. I nearly killed a lawyer the day I learned this. So I'm not signing off on all that bullshit for a fraction of what is rightfully ours, if not legally. They want it, they'll have to get it another way. We'll still make our money. ( or at least a fraction of it )
Once they get the well in, you won't see anything, but maybe a fire hydrant sized valve, hidden.
