NEW YORK (Reuters) - Chesapeake Energy Corp.'s crews have delayed their attempt to control a well blowout in Wyoming until the weather improves, the company said on Thursday.

Chesapeake lost control of the well near Douglas, Wyoming on Tuesday leading to a blowout that leaked natural gas and drilling mud.

"We're waiting for the wind direction and speed to change," Chesapeake spokeswoman Kelsey Campbell said. She declined to specify the exact weather issues stalling the company's response to the blowout.
