NEW YORK (Reuters) - Workers curbed a natural-gas leak from a stricken Chesapeake Energy Corp. well in Wyoming about three days after a blowout, the state Oil and Gas Conservation Commission said on Friday.

Boots and Coots, a pressure control company owned by Houston-based Halliburton and contracted by Chesapeake after the well blowout on Tuesday, was pumping drilling mud into the well a day after its efforts were hampered by wind and adverse weather.

The well stopped leaking natural gas about three days after Chesapeake lost control while installing a well casing, the Commission said.
