Chesapeake Energy royalties caught in web of litigation

eenews.net — It takes some effort for an oil and gas company to get on Tom Corbett's bad side, because the Republican governor of Pennsylvania has been a staunch supporter of the industry since his state began showing shale gas potential a decade ago.
