Chesapeake WAS mainly a Nat Gas company.
They have been increasing their oil production to increase income while NG prices are low.
They can ramp up their mothballed Nat Gas production at anytime they desire.
CHK is the best oil and NG company invest in at the moment, since they are, and will continue cutting costs and increasing income.
Why invest in other oil and NG companies when you can buy more shares of CHK, the company with the best potential?
Why the desire to repeat in the same sector? However, I do understand the international implications. Ever consider alternative, off-grid green power solutions such as FCEL. I quote from a Forbes article this morning,

According to the most recent earnings call, FuelCell Energy has an installed base and backlog exceeding 300 MW. It also recently opened a manufacturing facility in Germany, with another coming on line in South Korea .." I don't own a lot of shares and am at breakeven so I really don't have a dog in this fight.
