April 20, 2006 - The Second (and last) Kitchen Table Meeting with Mr. Rollock
I know that among the many topics discussed during Mr. Rollock's first visit to our home (Feb 17th) the issue of unsatisfactory rental increases was brought up. He told us about the procedures we would have to go through to challenge a compensation review in the future. He also told us he would include this issue on his list of concerns that he would be addressing to EnCana on our behalf. This issue was again discussed with Mr. Rollock during his April 20th visit. This fact is anecdotal as this subject never shows up in any written correspondences from Mr. Rollock.
Documents and correspondences received in March and April between us and Mr. Rollock will support my allegations that this man knowingly lied to us and about us. To this day the first issues of violating industry directives as discussed with Mr. Rollock on February 17, 2006 were never adequately addressed and remain unresolved.
Every time we stood firm on a position requiring nothing more than a small token of honesty and due diligence from an EnCana rep we were sorely disappointed. Under such circumstances we soon discovered EnCana employed a sneaky tactic of trading out the current landman and would send in a new face. On several occasion when we brought up commitments made to us by the previous landman, the current new face would inform us that "we are dealing with him/her now' and 'what we were told by previous reps is now out the window'.
This pattern of dealings explains in part why no one was ever held accountable for their words or actions while sitting at our kitchen table.
The need to explain the following is not really important as the letter and questions are self explanatory, but it needs to be known that we thoughtfully compiled our concerns and inquiries before Mr. Rollock's April 20th arrival. We handed this communication directly to Mr. Rollock upon completion of our morning discussion. He told us he would pass it along to the appropriate EnCana desk and shook Dad's hand on that promise before taking his leave.
We soon realized that EnCana staff have very short memories.
