Misleading
13 March 2014 | by kansasnativehunterSee all my reviews

This film is highly misleading. All of the landowners in the film knew full well ahead of time that they were not buying the mineral rights with the land and at any time an oil company could come drill on their property within 200' of their house. They knew this going in. The price of land without mineral rights is much cheaper than the price of land with minerals. That's the trade-off. You get the land cheap, but an oil company can come drill on it anytime and there's nothing you can do about it......up to an including within 200' of your house. This is the way it has been done for decades. Anybody who willingly enters a spilt estate situation knows (or should know) what they are getting themselves into. They decided to buy the land anyway. Now they want to cry about drilling on their land? Explain that one to me.
