Chesapeake Energy of Oklahoma City, OK is the largest independent producer of natural gas in the United States. A central control room monitors pipeline and distribution activities, and monitors events that may affect demand. Electrosonic furnished the complete display system, including a VN-Quantum processor used to allow complete flexibility in the positioning and sizing of images. Electrosonic VN Glimpse adaptors are used to allow the SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) images to arrive over conventional Ethernet. The overview display system allows both real-time video images and SCADA status display images to be shown.

The majority of Chesapeake Energy’s output is derived from the Barnett Shale of north central Texas, the Haynesville Shale of East Texas and northwestern Louisiana, the Fayetteville Shale of central Arkansas and the Marcellus Shale of the northern Appalachian Basin. It also has active operations and exploration activities in many other areas as well.
