The drilling of a well as authorized in this act shall be upon the further conditions that some person shall be willing to enter into an agreement with the city whereby such person will drill and equip the well at his or her own expense, in the first instance, and without cost to the city, and with the understanding that such person shall be repaid from the natural gas produced from said well or the proceeds thereof, and that after being fully reimbursed the city shall then become the sole and exclusive owner of the well.
