While the industry tries to reduce its bulging supply, some companies involved in natural gas drilling in shale formations are caught up in legal battles. The act of fracturing using high pressure water and sometimes chemicals to free natural gas trapped in shale has many environmentalists and residents calling for a stop to the practice. Southwestern Energy Company is now involved in lawsuits claiming that its drilling activities have poisoned water supplies in the area of northeastern Pennsylvania.

The Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale which has become the centre of focus of many oil & gas companies is also seeing a growing number of complaints due to the risks of contamination of water reserves in the area due to hydrofracking. Chesapeake Energy Corporation was very recently summoned by the Pennsylvania's Department of Environmental Protection to inspect a number of its wells in light of gas leaked in a river and other water reserves.
