(Continued from Page 1) Even old producing well are net being kept up. Most of these are under "'lifetime contracts" and gas from these wells still brings the same price it did at the time the contract was signed. Some of those prices are as low as 20 cents per mcf. "'At those prices producers simply cannot afford to keep the wells running properly, thus production is poor," said Coffman. This price, he feels, should be increased. The price paid for gas from a re-worked well (deepened or re-frac- tured) has been increased, "'but not enough." says Mork. "'to make it really worthwhile." As an example he cites a recent case where it took four months to get back simply the cost of reworking the well. thus showing no income for that period of time. The Appalachian area, inclmiing West Virginia, has the greatest shortage of natural gas of any place in the country. All reports show that it will get worse ~ winter. Looking at the immediate future, these indepen- dents say they believe they can help alleviate this shortage if they can just start drilling again now. Production of additional gas in the area will do much to relieve this shortage and in addition will help employment, prevent the loss of industry in the state and improve the economic picture here, they feel. An increase of price for the independents here. Morris feels would not mean a great increase in the price to consumers. "They have already had a price increase, but even if it did mean hi~her bills it would be worth it. Gas is still the cheapest commodity a consumer can burn," he states. "'The electric companies have increased prices based on their increased costs. Why should gas be any different?" asks Morris. Summin~ up. the men interviewed stated: "As one listens to and reads the many opinions regarding the cause of the natural gas shortage he finds the blame is placed on Federal Agencies.
