Chesapeake Energy announced three oil and gas asset monetization transactions for total proceeds of approximately $2.6B in cash. Chesapeake has completed the sale of preferred shares of a newly formed unrestricted, non-guarantor consolidated subsidiary, CHK Cleveland Tonkawa, and a 3.75% overriding royalty interest in the first 1,000 new net wells to be drilled on CHK C-T leasehold and certain wells contributed at closing for proceeds of $1.25B. The purchasing investment group was led by GSO Capital Partners, an affiliate of the Blackstone (BX). Chesapeake has retained all the common equity interests in CHK C-T. Chesapeake also completed the sale of a 10-year volumetric production payment to an affiliate of Morgan Stanley (MS) for proceeds of approximately $745M, or approximately $4.68 per thousand cubic feet of natural gas equivalent, for certain producing assets in its Anadarko Basin Granite Wash play. Finally, Chesapeake recently signed a purchase and sale agreement covering approximately 58,400 net acres of leasehold in the Texoma Woodford play in Bryan, Carter, Johnston and Marshall counties in Oklahoma to XTO Energy, a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM), for approximately $590M in cash before certain deduction and standard closing adjustments.

10:31 EDTCHKAELP says McClendon did not approve Chesapeake settlement
Aubrey McClendon and American Energy Partners, LP responded to the announcement by American Energy Utica and The Energy & Minerals Group that Chesapeake Energy (CHK) has dismissed AEU and the John Doe Defendants 1-20 from the lawsuit filed by Chesapeake on February 17. The statement read, "AEU apparently chose to settle with Chesapeake before any discovery was taken, evidently for the business purpose of mitigating further damage that Chesapeake's litigation has been having on AEU's business and financing activities. AEU has the right to resolve the case in this fashion, but this resolution should not be mistaken as reflecting an informed view of the merits of Chesapeake's claims or a concession of any liability by any party to Chesapeake. Although Mr. McClendon is a director and the single largest non-institutional shareholder in AEU, he did not approve the settlement and neither he nor AELP were advised of the negotiated terms of this settlement. AELP and Mr. McClendon will continue their efforts to have the dispute arbitrated as required by Mr. McClendon's agreements with Chesapeake. As he will show in the appropriate forum, Mr. McClendon rightfully possesses an extensive array of information about more than 16,000 wells, and the related leasehold acreage and future wells, he jointly owns with Chesapeake, including land, well, title, accounting, geological, engineering, reservoir, operating, marketing, and performance information. Mr. McClendon's well-documented agreements with Chesapeake gave him the right to own and use this information for his own purposes, including sharing it with his employees, contractors, advisors, consultants and affiliated entities."
