Vilonia Family Struggles Against Chesapeake Subsidiary

Posted By on Tue, Sep 30, 2008 at 8:52 AM

The Log Cabin reports that Arkansas Midstream Gas Services, a subisidiary of Chesapeake Energy, is suing a Vilonia family, citing iminent domain for the use of the family's land for a gas pipeline. 

"The suit involves a 60-foot right-of-way for a pipeline, which would cross the Alexander's property connecting gas wells with a transmission line, ultimately, taking natural gas to market. In the suit, Midstream, citing eminent domain, requested the court to determine the amount of compensation due to the Alexander family for the right-of-way.

Mark and Bill Alexander said they had been working with the company several months and they were surprised when they were notified the suit had been filed.

'Since May, our lives have been literally turned upside down,' said Bill Alexander, speaking on behalf of family. 'We have bent over backwards to try to work with the company.'"

Turns out it might all be for not.  The family received a phone call from Midstream saying the gas well was dry, so see you later.
