Chesapeake's McClendon is back in the energy business

By Bob Downing Published: April 15, 2013

From the Power Play blog by the Oklahoman, the newspaper in Oklahoma City:

Former Chesapeake Energy Corp. CEP Aubrey McClendon is back in the energy business.

Just two weeks after leaving Chesapeake Energy,  McClendon appears to be moving full steam ahead with multiple new business ventures, at least two of them energy related.

He has leased office space and has registered at least two new companies in the state of Oklahoma: Arcadia Capital LLC and McClendon Energy Operating LLC.

The entity American Energy Partners LP was also registered on the same day as McClendon Energy Operating by the law firm of former Chesapeake Energy director and long-time McClendon friend Shannon Self, records show.

All three companies have hung out their shingles at the Harvey Parkway.
