Chesapeake working to get W.Va. well in compliance

Posted: Updated:

Chesapeake Energy could soon resume operations at a gas well pad in Marshall County that was shut down by state regulators.

Division of Environmental Protection spokesman Tom Aluise tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register that Chesapeake has made significant progress stabilizing the Ray Baker pad. He says the DEP's shutdown order could be lifted, pending an inspection of the site Monday.

The DEP declared the well pad site near Glen Easton an imminent danger to people last year due to erosion control and other violations.

Chesapeake spokeswoman Stacey Brodak says land slips have been stabilized and erosion and sediment controls are in place.
