I would like to comment on an article written in The Drill called “This land is your land, this land is my land.”
First, I would like to point out that treating a landowner like your mother definitely doesn’t apply to Continental Resources. They treat many landowners like a dog that you throw a bone to and you should be happy to have them on your land for the next 100 years.
I encourage Gov. Jack Dalrymple to come out and talk with some of the landowners who have to deal with Continental Resources. High pressure and intimidation is what they are all about.
Hats off to the other oil companies who realize their footprint may be on the land until the year 2100 or beyond, and justly compensate the landowners.
Perhaps by bringing this issue to light, our politicians will take note and take action.
