Chesapeake Energy corporate report

Report summary

Executing on a multi-billion-dollar divestiture programme represents Chesapeake's top priority for 2018. We identify the Haynesville and Marcellus positions as the most attractive divestment candidates. Regardless of which assets are sold, we think the company will have to choose between production growth and free cash flow over the near term. Key operational catalysts are linked to delineation efforts at early-life plays in the Powder River and Anadarko basins.
