FORT WORTH -- Chesapeake Energy Corp. will pay $104 million for the Pier 1 Imports building on the western edge of downtown Fort Worth to house several hundred employees in its Barnett Shale operations, the companies said Monday.

This is great news for downtown FTW as another energy company will be moving hundreds of additional high-paying jobs into the city, this time from its out-of-town headquarters in OKC.
And its all about the Barnett Shale (centered below the city) and what it contains - not crude or coal but natural gas, which in environmental terms is the most acceptable and should be a main component of this countrys long-term energy stategy (if we ever get one).
This is a very important component for the vibrant & diversified FT Worth economy and the long-term success of the city & Tarrant county.
