    NG=dinosaur fossil and wind are where the future is at because the inputs (sun & wind) have zero cost....fracking has extreme costs to the bottom lines of these brave companies buying into the shale bubble

  • 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.

    Robert Egloff...the 90% scrub of CO2 relates to clean coal not natural there is no such thing as clean coal and natural gas is not clean!

  • 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.

    God bless Chesapeake? Oh yeah all those churches that got paid off to sell their soul to the devil and pollute the poor people in their neighborhoods. But hey its jobs...

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Call Me Crazy, But I Think Chesapeake Energy Has Turned Over A New Leaf [View article]
    Another thing NOT going for natural gas is that those power plants that have switched from coal to natural gas now have an added risk of the nature of the interdependency of natural gas and electricity to each other. This opens the door for nuclear, wind, and solar to be playing an important role in being what keeps rolling blackouts from happening when those natural gas fired power plants have interruptions in receiving natural gas (ie during freezes or storms or during pipeline disruptions).

    The Texas and New Mexico power outages of Feb. 2011 during the extended freeze was a lesson learned about how not so great/reliable natural gas is for example...some urban natural gas compressors and compressor stations are powered with “electricity” and when the lights go out, so do the compressors.

    Texas and New England are about 40% dependant on natural gas at their power plants, so they have more interdependency risk than other states.

    If natural gas ever does go back up high enough...I read that some power plants will just switch back to burning coal-whatever is cheaper (this won’t help Chesapeake)...anybody know anything more about that?

  • Chesapeake Energy: Another Step In The Right Direction [View article]
    I think the production decline curves (which keeps them on the drilling treadmill just to keep production up) will show its ugly head soon enough. Drilling for oil and getting the byproduct “gas" will not help the pending doom of NG production decline curves bottoming out. In the Barnett Sale, we have 16,000 gas wells...hmmpf...for those in the city, we are starting to have to either refrack or add “electric” lift compressors which could be about 500K each....that will tax the electric grid...we need to decide if we’re gonna keep throwing money at pipeline integrity and pipeline build out and lift compressors, or start getting off of fossil fuels by adding more wind, hydro, solar and thermal....why invest in a dinosaur existence?

  • Sandridge Or Chesapeake, Is Either Management Team Worth Betting On? [View article]
    I need people to invest in Chesapeake cause we need them to stay solvent to be able to afford pressurized, ventless flowback tanks for their flowback operations in urban areas. The Truman/Cowboy Stadium drillsite had 3 wells fracked in August/Sept. and will not flowback until 2013....I hope the well doesn’t sour, and I hope they will not use those cheap open hatch flowback tanks near my family and our Entertainment District in Arlington TX.

  • Chesapeake: Another Comeback Story? [View article]
    For those that are thinking of resigning and with all the negative publicity about Chk not paying royalties as is some news I’m flooding the internet with so Chk will get it in their head to DRILL RIGHT>>>
    I live at ground zero for urban drilling. We have about 60 padsites in our 99 sq mile town here in Arlington TX. The following requests won’t cover public protections on the huge buildout and the associated human errors or accidents. We had a drill spill in Lake Arlington, our drinking source, a couple of years ago and have had maybe a dozen emission events over the last couple of years that I am aware of. The following are the items lacking in our oil and gas drilling ordinance….

    1. Use electric (not diesel) rigs in urban areas.
    2. Video tape ALL cement casing pours when it comes back up to the top through the annulus so that there is proof of an even pour and ensure all wells have electric bond log tests.
    3. All drilling mud farming (private & commercial) and *brine “road spraying” is subject to open records of water & soil test results.
    4. We need the industry to invent technology to keep the toxic, silica dust on the padsite-those pathetic pillow case looking socks aren’t getting the job done.
    5. Mandate ventless, emission free flowback tanks.
    6. We shouldn’t have to wait 2.5 years for the EPA mandated Green Completions and allow venting or flaring in urban or rural areas….methane losses should be prevented-period.
    7. The pipeline should be in place FIRST before fracturing so that flowback doesn’t sit in the ground for months festering some unknown, man-made hydrogen sulfide-like stale water flowback.
    8. The setback away from people should be substantial. Rural method drilling is not acceptable in urban areas. A doctor who is an environmental tester said that the health effects are being seen downwind from about 1,800 – 2,500 feet.
    9. Zero tolerance for underinspected, or faked Waste Disposal Injection Well casing pressure tests which risks eventual migration of toxic fluids into our drinking supplies.
    10. State entities overseeing oil and gas should regulate how close the old wells are to new wells.
