In a possible sign that New York State won't be allowing fracking anytime soon, drilling giant Chesapeake Energy reportedly has abandoned its fight to retain land leases in portions of the state sitting atop vast natural gas reserves.
With its ruling on Thursday, a New York appeals court delivered a key victory to environmentalists in their fight to keep fracking out of the state.
Both sides of the fracking debate, including the environmentalists who deeply oppose the practice, are looking for clarity, Mr. Pardo said.
"No one is happy with the delay. They'd like to see a final thumbs up or thumbs down. ... Just when it looks like we're close, nothing happens," he said.
