Mineral rights & wrongs: Retired couple can’t stop oil company

I believe the company that plans to drill on the Popham’s land is Pioneer. They plan to drill up to 5 wells.
Looking out from his front porch at an oil drill on his neighbor’s property, Leonard said he sees his future and it’s not what he saved for all his life.
I’ve advised the Popham’s to get baseline testing of their air water and soil. They have ponds that are stocked with fish so those will also be tested. This will cost the retired couple $1500 or more and they will have to retest their water, at least yearly, from now on. Life in the sacrifice zone gets expensive.
Pioneer should buy their land so they can move away. It would cost them less in the longrun. I think the Pophams are in this for the longrun.
BTW, It’s immoral to profit from another’s misery.
