Dozens of new Marcellus wells are being drilled in Marshall County in the coming year to reap the benefits of the area's super rich wet natural gas deposits. More than $200 million to be invested by one company alone...

One man was given $85,000 for just letting a company walk over his land.

At the end of their walk he was offered damages of $100,000 for the 4 wells they would drill.

They promised him at least $30,000 per month for each well, when the gas began to flow.

That's pretty good money...even in Wv.
