Leasing for Landowners

We form landowner groups

Our process begins with the creation of a landowner group.  We have chosen our group locations based on the current economics within the natural gas industry, and areas with promising geology for the future. Our online GIS mapping tool, regular townhall meetings, and newsletters keep our members informed and educated. Landowner Testimonials

We grow contiguous acres

Our experienced and professional, full-time team is dedicated to growing our groups, while focusing on building contiguous acreage.  We utilize strength in numbers in order to create greater bargaining power for the landowner.  Oil and gas companies are looking for contiguous blocks of land to form drilling units.  As a landowner acting alone, it can be difficult to attract interest in your individual property, but when you are part of a larger group your holdings will command more market power. Members gain access to our online interactive GIS mapping tool with full access to view which landowners in their area have and have not committed to the group.  This allows members to take an active role in assisting with the growth of the group through neighbor referrals. *** As part of our ongoing goal to provide our landowners with premium oil and gas leases, we are in the process of upgrading our mapping technology to keep pace with advancements in technology and changes in the oil and gas industry. We will notify active landowners once the upgrades are complete.

We market the landowner group acreage

Our experienced team stays in constant communication with multiple oil and gas companies by keeping them updated with the ongoing progress of our groups. We provide access to our GIS mapping tool which offers potential bidders highly organized information to assess the group opportunities.  When the time is right, we help identify who is qualified to make offers based on their area of interest and budget.  We also take into consideration their history of responsible drilling and industry reputation.  Our goal is to identify multiple oil and gas companies  to provide lease offers to each landowner group.

We negotiate a premium lease

CX-Energy is not a law firm and does not intend to act as your legal counsel.  As part of our services we team up with oil and gas attorneys who specialize in negotiating oil and gas leases with premium terms including upfront bonus payments, ongoing royalty payments, and surface and water protections. Our staff is courteous and knowledgeable and ready to assist you in answering any question you may have regarding leasing your oil and gas properties.

Market update

The steep drop in the energy commodities have caused the oil and gas companies to slash budgets for 2015 and laying off employees. The rig count in Pennsylvania continues to drop due to budgets being cut. The price of natural gas remained under $3.00 an MCF during a very cold winter in comparison to $6.00 an MCF during last years cold “vortex” winter. Withdraws from US Storage have been significant buy it has not caused the price to increase for natural gas as in the past. The price of a barrel of oil has hovered around $50 (nice when visiting the gas pump), about half of what it normally trades for and natural gas liquids are down as well. 

Active landowner groups open for enrollment

We are currently creating and marketing landowners groups in many counties.  We would be happy to discuss with you the benefits of joining a landowner group and even help you to find a landowners group in your area that you may consider joining. Our staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and ready to assist you in answering any questions you may have regarding your oil and gas properties. Contact us with any questions or to learn more about your local group by calling 724-933-1311, or emailing one of the groups listed below.

I wasn’t happy with the standard leases which were being presented to me.  CX-Energy did what they said they were going to do.  They focused on getting us a good lease with the terms we wanted.  I would work with them again, and have referred them to friends and neighbors.
