Company Sues Natural Gas Producer

An eastern Kentucky company sues the region's largest natural gas producer, claiming it underpaid landowners millions of dollars in royalties.

Pikeville-based Applachian Land Company says equitable land improperly takes out production costs and severance taxes from the market price on gas produced on private land.

The suit claims equitable shorted landowners 45 million dollars.

Equitable says it’s consistent with their contracts and business practices in Kentucky.
