Pa. Farm Bureau takes on natural gas drilling companies in royalty disputes

April 3, 2014

Disputes over royalty payments for oil and natural gas drilling have involved several farmers in rural parts of the state. The Pennsylvania Farm Bureau is now calling on lawmakers to take action.

Farm Bureau President Carl Shaffer said some members have explained how they're losing money they say is legally theirs.

Jim Gore, a farmer in Bradford County, said he has documentation revealing about a 15% reduction in his overall royalty check in 2013 for so-called "post production costs."
