The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection said Tuesday it fined Cabot Oil & Gas Corp. more than $76,000 for losing control of a well at its Huston pad in Brooklyn Township, Susquehanna County. Regulators say the well released natural gas for about 27 hours before it was brought under control on January 6th. The DEP says the gas dissipated and there was no significant environmental impact.
