Chesapeake stems flow from leaking natgas well

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Chesapeake Energy has stemmed the flow of leaking fluids from a natural gas well which suffered a blow-out late on Tuesday in Pennsylvania, the company said in a statement.

Chesapeake said it would conduct an investigation into the cause of the accident which sent thousands of gallons of drilling fluid into the environment.
