08:11 EDTCHKChesapeake announces exchange agreement with RKI Exploration
Chesapeake Energy announced that it has entered into an agreement with RKI Exploration & Production to exchange nonoperated interests in approximately 440,000 gross acres in the Powder River Basin in southeastern Wyoming. Under the agreement Chesapeake will convey to RKI approximately 137,000 net acres and its interest in 67 gross wells, with an average working interest of 22% in the northern portion of the PRB, where RKI is currently designated operator. In exchange RKI will convey to Chesapeake approximately 203,000 net acres and its interest in 186 gross wells, with an average working interest of 48% in the southern portion of the PRB, where CHK is currently designated operator. In addition to the exchange of acreage, Chesapeake will pay RKI $450M in cash. The transaction, which is subject to certain closing conditions including the receipt of third-party consents, is expected to close in August. Upon closing of the acreage exchange, Chesapeake’s PRB acreage will be concentrated in the Southern Area. It will operate nearly 100% of its 388,000 net acres in the PRB, and will hold an approximate 79% average working interest. Chesapeake currently holds approximately 322,000 net acres in the PRB with a 38% average working interest. Anticipated key benefits of the RKI acreage exchange include the following: Increases Chesapeake’s PRB holdings by 66,000 net acres and average working interest from 38% to 79%; Consolidates Chesapeake’s position in the Southern Area, which offers multiple stacked oil pay zones with potentially recoverable gross resource estimated to be in excess of 2 billion barrels of oil equivalent; and adds net incremental production of approximately 4,500 boe per day.

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."
