  • Oil production in Texas’ Eagle Ford shale formation jumped 54% Y/Y in April; the nine fields that make up the majority of Eagle Ford yielded ~530K bbl/day of crude, after February output was revised higher by ~6%. EOG Resources (EOG) is the largest Eagle Ford leaseholder, with 639K net acres, and Chesapeake (CHK) is next with 485K.  [View news story]

  • In hundreds of cases across the U.S., drillers have agreed to cash settlements with people who say fracking ruined their water, according to a Bloomberg analysis of legal and regulatory filings. The strategy keeps data from regulators, policymakers, the media and health researchers, and makes it difficult to challenge the industry’s claim that fracking has never tainted anyone’s water.  [View news story]
    And whose idea was it to do urban drilling? People are getting sick near this activity, my husband has cancer-we’ve been surrounded for years kid, my pet, and I have asthma now....oh well? other kid has a high VMA and low absolute lymph count (we live two blocks from the Chesapeake drill site near the Cowboys Stadium-they flowback in open hatch tanks)...oh well he may have a brain tumor?...oh well....!.....Just search "The Harmed List” see the other thousand claims of injury from fracking. People that invest in fracking related mining especially near people and especially with this unconventional, unproven safe technolgy are real risk takers with their money and their souls.

  • Longleaf Partners Reveal Where Ex-Chesapeake CEO McClendon Lost Their Support  [View article]
    Chk needs to spend more money on protective measures drilling in urban areas. They need to figure out how to keep silica frack dust out of the airshed. They also need to flowback into closed, pressurized flowback tanks. They need to employ surface equipment that can run on nondiesel fuel too. They need to never return to Arlington gasland Texas and drill so close to people where they live and go to school.

  • Natural gas is threatening $4/MBTUs for the first time in 17 months as winter has shown no sign of exiting and MDA Weather Services is predicting lower-than-normal temps for most of the country for the rest of the month. "We could see three more weeks of (storage) withdrawals" at a time when most are positioned for additions, says an analyst. UNG +2.5%[View news story]
    The drilling treadmill will loose its steam as the hyperbolic production decline curves start to show themselves...the more we drill, the less production...hmmmn someone needs to tell Obama bout’ that before we start signing all these LNG export contracts.

  • Production of oil and gas from shale is growing fast enough that North America may be an energy exporter within a decade, ConocoPhillips (COP) CEO Ryan Lance says. Shale development, which brings a faster payoff than a liquefied natural gas project, has changed the investment cycle because it does not require massive up-front investments, he says.  [View news story]
    How do you factor in public opposition costing stocks real cash related to health effects in drilling near people? ....
    Those who R healthy in the shale get sick, those who were sick get sicker or die quicker, and those now dead R free from the dread in LIVING in this BarnettShaleHell.

  • McClendon's Departure From Chesapeake Should Prompt Further Changes And Equity Appreciation  [View article]
    McClendon falls right in tandum with the hyperbolic production decline curves for those horizontal wells. Hey lets export our energy security cause we currently have a short term gas glut...sounds like a good strategy.

  • Chesapeake's (CHK +6.4%) Archie Dunham says "the company is not for sale," but getting McClendon out removes a big obstacle in the way of a hostile takeover. CHK would make a juicy target for Asian state-controlled oil firms, Bernstein's Neil Beveridge writes; E&Ps with shale acreage or deepwater discoveries but lacking capital to develop the assets are exactly what they're looking for, given their access to low cost financing.  [View news story]
    The Chinese would be the highest payer to buy Chk because they are in this to get experience and don’t care about how low the natural gas prices are right now. I’m sure Arlington TX would welcome the Chinese with open arms and not even think twice about their Gas Drilling loopholed ordinance being so friendly to their pocket books at the expense of our lungs.

  • Chesapeake: Is Management Sending Hints Of A Complete Buyout?  [View article]
    Whether Chesapeake is fracking for gas or fracking for oil, you still have an unproven safe unconventional methodology that involves huge water waste and toxic disposal issues that speed up global warming ...fracking is fracking....who would invest in fracking? It is only a matter of time before widespread cement casing failures show themselves...are investors shielded from law suits? R investors shielded from extreme weather?

  • Chesapeake Energy (CHK) says Aubrey McClendon will retire as CEO effective April 1. The CHK board says its extensive review of alleged conflicts of interest and other matters involving McClendon has thus far found no improper conduct; a final report will be completed in mid-February. CHK +10.6% AH.  [View news story]
    Bye many people suffered with rural way drilling in urban drilling areas?...Aubrey has a legacy of his company being a bad player in Arlington TX's air quality.

  • How Did Chesapeake Sell $12 Billion Of Assets And Actually Increase Its Debt?  [View article]
    Well that explains why they haven’t any money to drill right in urban areas...they should be quickly taking advantage of using natural gas to power their fracking engines with and they should be considerate of the breathers near the Cowboy Stadium and flowback into urban tanks that are ventless and pressurized. Chk is a bad player in my book. The wave is growing on how many people Chk fracks out of clean air and royalties.

  • Chesapeake Energy (CHK) agrees to let the EPA conduct extensive tests at one of its drilling sites as part of an investigation into fracking safety, and Range Resources (RRC) may be near a similar agreement. The moves suggest companies believe they can pass close inspection by government scientists and hope cooperation will lead to a favorable view of fracking in the EPA study due next year.  [View news story]
    Too bad the EPA isn’t babysitting Chk at the Truman padsite in Arlington gasland Texas. They “did” use an electric rig...I’ll give them that, but when it came to fracking, they aren’t using the Best Available emission Control Technologies to use natural gas to power engines during fracking (and only use diesel when those engines are idling). And for the flowback, they refuse to use URBAN flowback tanks that are ventless and pressurized. They still use the old school OPEN HATCH flowback tanks and then hide behind lax regulations to justify not drillng right near densly populated areas. Now they run around with body guards at the city council meetings-last Tuesday they were successful in getting a permit to put 10 more wells within 360 feet of a daycare center. Google “Arlington Frcking Tour of Daycare Centers”.

  • No Bakken, But Everything Else - Chesapeake Energy Is Set Up To Succeed  [View article]
    NG leaks from cradle to grave worsen climate change. Texas doesn’t even screen for methane in their standard air tests or their permanent air monitoring stations....its bad players like them that make NG have a bad name. Chesapeake had a chance to flowback 3 wells near the Cowboy Stadium, but refuses to use urban friendly flowback tanks as requested...instead they used rural OPEN HATCH flowback tanks and flowed invisible hydrocarbons ...even the EPA didn't realize their last round of New Source Performance Standards to regulate Green House Gases missed that part in outlawing open hatch flowback tanks. The Gas buster flowback tanks exist that are ventless and pressurized..but Chesapeake is too cheap to drill right in Arlington-hell they admitted they won’t be fracking the 4th well using engines to run on natural gas--they will use diesel....again..... in our highly, densely populated urban area near the stadium....bad players like Chesapeake give a bad name to gas drilling. We wish Exxon would buy them out in Arlington...we fear bad players like them.
