NARO to host ‘coffee house’ meetings for Marcellus royalty owners

The National Association of Royalty Owners’ Pennsylvania Chapter (NARO-PA) will host two meetings locally for landowners who are receiving or soon hope to be receiving natural gas royalties. Numerous NARO-PA representatives will be on hand to discuss issues such as deductions of post-production expenses and the NARO-PA legislative agenda.

The first meeting will be held at the Montrose VFW on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 6:30 p.m. and the second meeting will be at the Black Walnut American Legion on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 6:30 p.m. Both meetings are open to the public.

Chapter Vice-President Trevor Walczak explains the “coffee-house” meetings as “a casual atmosphere to engage in discussion covering a broad range of royalty owner issues and how NARO-PA is working to assist royalty owners. There is no formal program, but rather an informal briefing highlighting our upcoming legislative initiatives in an atmosphere which promotes discussion and attendee participation.”

“As an advocacy group representing the rights of Marcellus interest owners in Harrisburg, NARO-PA wants to make sure we are delivering a clear message from the people to our elected officials this fall,” Walczak adds. “To do this effectively, we have been conducting these style meetings statewide as an opportunity to listen to royalty owners and discuss our path forward as we update Pennsylvania’s gas laws.”

Tuesday night is pizza and wing night at the Montrose VFW. The kitchen will be open on Wednesday evening at the Black Walnut Legion. There is also a cash bar at both events.

    This will help people especially royalty owners to discuss properly about their situation so as to prevent problems in the future. Pennsylvania law on royalties have been known to have caused conflicts with royalty owners before. Hope this will make a difference.
