Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District Negotiates Non-developmental Lease with Antero
January 21, 2013
On January 18, 2013, the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) announced that it has negotiated a 6,700 acre non-developmental oil and gas lease with Antero Resources. The lease will prohibit drilling or surface development on MWCD property, but will allow Antero to drill under MWCD land from other nearby wells. Financial terms of the lease are still being negotiated. The MWCD staff plans to recommend to the Board of Directors to enter into the lease with Antero at the Board’s February 15, 2013 meeting.
