"Natgas Execs Seek Disclosure of Marcellus Drilling Chemicals"

The Marcellus, which stretches from West Virginia across most of Pennsylvania and into New York, could hold a 10-year supply of natural gas for the United States, but its development is sparking a backlash from some residents who say they are at risk."
