“The creation of this public-private partnership can have a great impact on our region and ensure that the best land use decisions are made for our communities,” said Co-eXprise CEO and Founder William Blair.

Preston County Commissioners in conjunction with Co-eXprise announce today an invitation to all local municipal authorities, townships, and other government entities to attend a presentation scheduled for February 18, 2011, at 7pm, at the Preston County Commission Commissioners Meeting Room located behind the Courthouse Annex 106 W Main Street in Kingwood, WV. This event will inform local government and municipal entities on how to best leverage their oil and gas rights.

The Marcellus and Utica Shale rock formations underlie much of the region and are believed to hold significant amounts of natural gas. Advancements in drilling technology have made the region’s oil and gas rights a potential revenue source for the local area.

Preston County Commissioner Craig Jennings said “We wanted to offer this meeting to folks in Preston County and surrounding counties to bring information that is invaluable when making decisions about mineral rights and the approach to achieve the best market price and lease terms.”

This event will be jointly hosted by Preston County Commissioners Craig Jennings, Victoria A. Cole, and Dave Price and Co-eXprise, a regional company who works with both the public and private sector to realize the best available terms for leases of subsurface mineral rights.

“This forum is designed to inform and discuss how the local region can best benefit from the recent investment in oil and gas leasing,” said Co-eXprise Founder and CEO William Blair. “The creation of this public-private partnership can have a great impact on our region and ensure that the best land use decisions are made for our communities.”

Co-eXprise Marketplace offers a Mineral Rights Bidding Solution which enables cities, counties, states, schools, municipalities, airport authorities and private land owner associations to competitively bid their oil and gas rights to achieve the best market price and lease terms. Customers maximize their bonus and royalty payments and realize millions of additional dollars that can self-fund key organizational initiatives.

Presenters will include representatives from Co-eXprise.

Dates will be announced for future private landowner meetings that will focus on public-private land aggregation leasing partnership within the region.
