Chesapeake replaces Penn wellhead, gains control

(Reuters) - NEW YORK, April 25 (Reuters) - Chesapeake Energy Corp said it had replaced the wellhead at a Pennsylvania natural gas well that suffered a blow out last week, which sent drilling fluids spewing into surrounding area.

The new wellhead completes efforts to gain permanent control of the blowout well, the company said late on Monday.
