The Company focuses its natural gas exploration, development and acquisition efforts in the eight operating areas: Barnett Shale, Fayetteville Shale, Haynesville Shale, Marcellus Shale, Mid-Continent, Permian and Delaware Basins, South Texas/Gulf Coast/Ark-La-Tex and, Appalachian Basin. Chesapeake Energy Marketing, Inc., one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries, provides natural gas and oil marketing services, including commodity price structuring, contract administration and nomination services for Chesapeake, its partners and other producers. Its oil production is generally sold under market sensitive or spot price contracts. Its natural gas production is sold to purchasers under percentage-of-proceeds contracts, percentage-of-index contracts or spot price contracts.

The Company's exploration and production operations are subject to various types of regulation at the U.S. federal, state and local levels. Such regulation includes requirements for permits to drill and to conduct other operations and for provision of financial assurances covering drilling and well operations.|
