Good Article on George Mitchell

The Houston Chronicle had a good article on George Mitchell, co-founder of Mitchell Energy, who pushed for the development of shale gas in the Barnett Shale.  Mitchell later sold the company to Devon Energy, which added the concept of horizontal drilling to fracturing shale rock to create the shale gas industry we know today.

The article gives a little more information than an interview published by Forbes earlier this summer.  Both pieces shed light on the man who stubbornly pushed for his company to look more closely at developing shale gas.
