FOLLOWING through on its November warning, the Sierra Club filed a federal lawsuit this week going after three Oklahoma energy companies for their roles in the state’s increased earthquake activity. The quakes aren’t the only shaking going on.
The Sierra Club is looking for a payday with its move against Chesapeake Energy Corp., Devon Energy Corp. and New Dominion LLC. Recall that SandRidge was on the environmental group’s original list of targets. Since then, SandRidge has experienced terrific cash flow challenges. Color us skeptical of the Sierra Club’s explanation that hiccups in getting notice to the company is the reason it was omitted from this lawsuit.
