TERA LLC v. Rice Drilling D LLC, et al., Case No. 2023-0411
Seventh District Court of Appeals (Belmont County)
-Does a clause in an oil and gas drilling contract allowing for drilling in "the formation commonly known as the Utica Shale" include the Point Pleasant rock formation?
- Does a determination of "bad faith trespass" in the exploration and extraction of natural resources include the requirement to prove that a trespasser did not have an honest belief of the right to explore or extract from an area?
