  MARCELLUS SHALE              No doubt you have heard or read recently about the boom of natural gas contained in the Marcellus Shale of Pennsylvania.  As the industry matures, the questions about the economic, environmental and property rights effect that the extraction of this valuable resource impacts become more apparent.            Have you been approached by a landman, gas or drilling company asking you to lease your gas rights?  There are many aspects to consider when signing a Marcellus gas lease, including but not limited to the percentage of royalties paid, the amount of money per acre, or bonus money, and the impact drilling will have on your property.            A generic gas lease provided to you by the driller will not always protect or address every concern the landowner has.            Whether you have been approached by a landman or not, please contact Gaydos, Gaydos & Associates, P.C. so we may assist you in negotiating the most advantageous lease for this remarkable resource. Gaydos, Gaydos & Associates, P.C.1223 Long Run RoadWhite Oak, PA  15131-2034 Phone: (412) 678-7900Toll Free: 1-877-TEAM-LAWFax: (412) 678-3269 Email: Joseph M.
