Eagle Ford Partner Sues Chesapeake Energy Corporation After Being Left Out of Midstream Deals

A partner of Chesapeake Energy Corp. is suing the company, saying Chesapeake improperly hid behind subsidiaries when it built and operated an Eagle Ford Shale gathering and processing system in Dilley, Texas, without giving the partner a first option to participate in the midstream effort. Stonegate Production Co. LLC said in a lawsuit filed March 6 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas that under the terms of a February 2010 partnership agreement, Stonegate would give "tens of thousands" of acres in four south Texas counties to Chesapeake to drill in exchange for 50% of the proceeds from the oil and gas produced. The suit said a clause in the contract called for Chesapeake to offer the partnership a chance to participate in any midstream operations built to gather and process the new gas and oil. Instead, Stonegate argues, Chesapeake used the subsidiaries Chesapeake Midstream Partners and Mockingbird Midstream Gas Services to build and operate the Dilley Gas Gathering System. The plaintiff said the separate but controlled companies were not subject to the partnership agreement.
