Chesapeake Energy Corp. to install safety devices on the wells as ordered by Pennsylvania regulators

Natural gas from the well of Chesapeake Energy Corp. had contaminated drinking water last year. Now the Pennsylvania regulators have asked the company to install safety devices. The devices cost $600. They have to be installed in all the 114 wells. EPA is now studying the effect of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking on environment.
