    • A backlash against fracking in Oklahoma could grow following this weekend's 5.6-magnitude, earthquake as the U.S. Geological Survey examines whether the record-breaking tremor was triggered by the underground disposal of wastewater from oil and gas production.
    • The USGS says it "cannot currently conclude whether or not this particular earthquake was caused by industrial-related, human activities. However, we do know that many earthquakes in Oklahoma have been triggered by wastewater fluid injection.”
    • “They are going to push the industry to come up with some permanent solutions,” says Michael Lynch of Strategic Energy & Economic Research. “It’s hard to believe Oklahoma would move to ban fracking, but I can see where they would say to people that they have to do something else with the wastewater."
    • PetroQuest Energy (PQ -3%) was ordered to shut four of its disposal wells in Oklahoma, and was the only publicly traded U.S. company among the operators affected by state regulators' orders to suspend a total of 37 wastewater disposal wells.
    • Oklahoma's leading oil and gas producers include CLR, CHK, DVN, MRO, NFX, XEC and SD.

    • SandRidge Energy (NYSE:SD) is in discussions with its creditors about reaching a debt restructuring deal ahead of a possible bankruptcy filing, Reuters reports.
    • If SD seeks bankruptcy protection, there is no certainty it would get enough support among creditors beforehand for a prepackaged deal, according to the report; a potential alternative would be a pre-negotiated bankruptcy, with some but not all debt investors agreeing on terms.
    • SD, which had $3.6B in debt as of Dec. 31, has an interest payment due June 1; while the company has missed such payments before, it managed to make them later.

    • The U.S. Geological Survey releases maps that for the first time show potential seismic dangers from man-made as well as naturally-occurring earthquakes.
    • The states most as risk of earthquakes from oil and gas activity - Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico and Arkansas, in order - are largely concentrated in regions where the energy industry disposes of millions of gallons of wastewater that is produced during the drilling and pumping process.
    • In 2015, the USGS recorded 2,500 quakes with a magnitude of 2.5 or higher in Oklahoma, up from just three in 2005; the state's leading oil and gas producers include CLR, CHK, DVN, SD and MRO.

    • Chesapeake Energy (CHK +34.4%) looks headed for the biggest two-day gain in its history after announcing its cooperation in the federal antitrust case against former CEO Aubrey McClendon.
    • CHK says it received immunity under a Justice Department leniency program that shields companies from criminal charges if they are first to report antitrust violations.
    • University of Houston law professor Darren Bush tells CNBC that the way the indictment was written by prosecutors "indicated they targeted McClendon as having initiated the conspiracy," and was "the big fish" prosecutors were after.
    • Bush also says it is probable that the co-conspirator in the case - reportedly former SandRidge (SD +19.3%) CEO Tom Ward - had agreed to testify against McClendon at trial, and then plead guilty afterward.
    • NYU law professor Harry First says it is possible that the alleged co-conspirator testified against McClendon before the grand jury that ended up indicting him, and the conspirator would have been granted immunity from his own testimony being used against him as part of a separate prosecution.

    • Cash-strapped energy companies are coming under increasing pressure from U.S. bank lenders and could see an average 15%-20% cut in their credit lines, the head of JPMorgan Chase's (NYSE:JPM) commercial bank says.
    • Banks had been more lenient with energy clients despite the prolonged slump in oil prices, but JPM's Doug Petno says that is changing, as companies such as Linn Energy (NASDAQ:LINE) and SandRidge Energy (NYSE:SD) max out revolving credit lines.
    • Petno says JPM is not waiting for April redetermination, when banks traditionally reassess the value of oil reserves underpinning energy loans to reassess its exposure.
    • JPM says it plans to increase provisions for expected losses on bad energy loans by more than 60% during Q1.
