From the beginning (2007) the goal of this website has been to enable landowners and professionals alike to share acquired knowledge about natural gas leasing and production.
Last year we received about $200 in donations and I ended up with over $1000 in out-of-pocket expenses. In 2020 we will keep the site alive only so long as donations cover our expenses. I do not have a horse in this race since I live in Wayne County, PA where the DRBC has banned fracking for over 10 years and no leasing will occur until and if the DRBC is put in it's place by the courts.
By mid year, the server will need to be updated and much of the code will need to be rewritten to conform to security and function requirements. That is time and money... Much more than the funding goal expresses. If the site has little value it is not worth spending time or money on. So your support will make my decision easy. If my expenses begin to exceed the support the site will just go blank.
Sincerely, Ron Stamets
