Chesapeake Energy Corporation Announces Agreements To Sell Permian, Midstream And Certain Other Assets For Total Net Cash Proceeds Of Approximately $6.9 Billion

“We very much appreciate the skill, effort and dedication of our midstream and Permian employees over the years, and we look forward to their continued success as they are either re-assigned inside Chesapeake or pursue new opportunities with the buyers of our assets or elsewhere in the industry.”

This news release includes “forward-looking statements” that give our current expectations or forecasts of future events, including sales of Permian Basin, midstream and other assets and the planned use of asset sale proceeds. Although we believe the expectations and forecasts reflected in our forward-looking statements are reasonable, we can give no assurance they will prove to be correct. They can be affected by inaccurate assumptions or by known or unknown risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ from the expectations expressed. The terms of the letter of intent with GIP are subject to further negotiation, and there is no agreement related to the planned sale of Eagle Ford oil gathering assets. Any of the asset sales announced in this news release may not be completed for the amounts expected, in the time frame anticipated or at all. We caution you not to place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this news release, and we undertake no obligation to update this information.
