Ohio Utica Shale

French energy firm could be Chesapeake partner in Ohio

By Bob Downing Published: December 23, 2011

More December news:

On Dec. 7, Bloomberg reported that Total SA, the largest oil and gas producer in France, may be the new partner of Chesapeake Energy Corp. and its Utica shale holdings in eastern Ohio.

Bloomberg cited unnamed sources for its report, and spokesmen for both companies declined comment.

Oklahoma-based Chesapeake, the biggest player in Ohio with 1.5 million acres leased and $2 billion invested, has said it expects to announce its new partner by the end of the year. Texas-based EnerVest is also involved in the deal.

Chesapeake intends to sell 25 percent of 570,000 acres in eastern Ohio for $2.14 billion.

Previously, Total had purchased a stake in Chesapeake's Barnett shale field in Texas in 2010.
