In BHP's first big purchase since failing on three mega-deals in the last three years, the global miner said it was buying Chesapeake's holdings in Arkansas' Fayetteville shale natural gas field, getting a huge foot in the door of the world's largest gas market.
Chesapeake's Fayetteville shale assets include about 487,000 acres of leasehold and producing natural gas properties in Arkansas in the U.S., one of the world's 30 largest gas fields.
Chesapeake said the deal with BHP Billiton Petroleum included existing net production of about 415 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day and about 420 miles of pipeline.
BHP aims to triple daily production from the new asset as the field is developed, and plans to spend $800 million to $1 billion a year over 10 years to develop the field, Yeager said.

I would definately download it Puterman (on my PC, not this piece of crap laptop I am running GEE on right now to free up the PC for the rest of my family)
So the question is, who to send it to? Who would write a worthy story highlighting all of the graphs, gifs and located douments to back this up? It needs to be a media outlet that is recognized and gets enough attention to spread the info, but not mainstream enough to be 'above the radar'. Any ideas?
The first thought that came into my mind, would be Anderson Cooper at CNN. In his AC360 nightly show, he always has segments called "Keeping Them Honest". And that would be the PERFECT way to try and get his attention.
Additionally... it was Anderson Cooper who kept up the most with Hurricane Katrina and the aftermath of that. He didn't leave Louisianna for months!
