Chesapeake Energy has put a half million acres in Wyoming and Colorado up for sale.
The money-strapped company has said it may sell assets worth $11.5 billion this year.
The Wyoming-Colorado deal includes acreage in the DJ Basin plus 29 wells that the company operates and its interests in 24 non-operated wells, Reuters reported.
Some of the assets are located in the Niobrare shale. Chesapeake CEO Aubrey McClendon in February characterized the Niobrara shale as disappointing.
