Restructuring and Related Activities [Abstract]  
Restructuring Expense
During the fourth quarter of 2015, we initiated certain organizational changes to simplify our corporate structure, improve our operational efficiencies and implement a strategy for sustainable, long-term stockholder value creation through financially disciplined development, construction, operation and investment.  As a result of these efforts, we recorded $26.2 million and $49.2 million of restructuring charges and other costs associated with restructuring and operational efficiency initiatives during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively, for which the majority of these charges required, or will require, cash expenditure. Included in these amounts are $20.9 million and $42.9 million for share-based compensation during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively.  All charges were recorded within the line item entitled “restructuring expense” on our Consolidated Statements of Operations and substantially all related to severance and other employee-related costs. As of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, we had $14.6 million and $33.0 million, respectively, of accrued restructuring charges and other costs that were recorded as part of accrued liabilities on our Consolidated Balance Sheets.  Operational efficiency initiatives remain ongoing and are expected to be substantially complete by the end of 2016.
