Jay-Bee Exploration - Blackrock Litigation

Pleasants County, WV
Bailey Glasser

RESPEC provided technical support and expert testimony in the evaluation of a number of oil and gas wells located in Pleasants County, WV. The review included detailed mapping of the individual property ownership, drilling unit boundaries, well bore tracks, and location of drilling pads.

The verification of the property ownership was a key component of the task. The property parcel data were obtained from the Pleasants County PVA, and individual leases were obtained from courthouse records and reviewed to confirm the property boundaries and ownership interests.

The various layers of property parcels, drilling boundaries and well bore tracks were compiled using RESPEC’s GIS system. The layers were used to denote lease execution dates, lease expiration dates, and lessor.
