This matter involves a suit by the plaintiff gas corporation to condemn a subsurface geological strata under the land owned
by the defendants for the purpose of storing gas underground. The condemnation suit did not seek the fee-simple title to the
property but only the right to inject and withdraw gas from the St. Peter geological formation lying under the 160 acres of
the defendants' land. The trial court directed a verdict awarding the defendants the sum of $4000 as just compensation for
the taking of this underground strata.
