Company Names PA Drilling Sites After Super Heroes

“Batman” is full of natural gas.

NewsWorks reports: “Western Pennsylvania-based Rice Energy has been truly unconventional when it comes to naming its natural gas wells. The company has appropriated monikers of superheros, including Batman and Robin, the Hulk, X-man, Zorro– even Captain Planet, an early 90′s cartoon promoting environmentalism.” Drilling sites are usually named after landowners; NewsWorks says Rice Energy would not comment.
