Report shows accidental leak had no lasting effect

SAIC, a firm that specializes in working with governmental agencies, issued a 179-page report on the Luther Township, PA, gas-well malfunction, which accidentally released well fluids. This accident was among the most serious that can happen during the completion of an onshore shale-gas well. The report contains extensive water-sampling and other data collected in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the US Environmental Protection Agency. It shows no lasting effect on the environment as a result of a surface release of well fluids from Chesapeake Energy’s “Atgas” well site. Read the full op/ed in the New York Post.
