Chesapeake Energy, one of the companies that is likely to seek permits for natural gas drilling in Yates County once new state regulations are in place, has launched a new web site that includes information on the hydraulic fracturing process.

The web site includes fact sheets prepared by company officials about the process itself and specifically about water use.

It also includes an animation of the "fracing" process and links to other sources of information and news.

The web site can be found here.
