Feb 9 17
Jones, Gregg, Creehan & Gerace LLP announces a panel of the Pennsylvania Superior Court on January 17, 2017, unanimously overturned a trial court’s refusal to certify a class action brought by landowners against Rex Energy Corporation and R.E. Gas Development, LLC. Cardinale versus R.E. Gas Development, LLC and Rex Energy Corporation, 2017 Pa.Super. 13. The appellate court remanded the landowners’ claims against Rex to the trial court for further proceedings. The landowners’ claims against Rex arise out of roughly 112 oil and gas leases signed in 2008 covering approximately 4,000 acres of Marcellus Shale. Rex did not pay the bonus payments under those leases. According to court records, the claims against Rex aggregate more than $8 million plus 8 years of interest. Rex on January 31, 2017, requested that the appellate court grant reargument en banc and/or reconsideration by the panel. The landowners will oppose Rex’ request for reargument or reconsideration.

Total consideration for the transaction is expected to be $175 million, with $37 million committed at closing for the first 22 wells.

Upon completion of the 58 well program, the company will have held by production/operations approximately 42,000 acres in Moraine East and approximately 10,400 acres in Warrior North.
