A story concerning Aubrey McClendon‘s latest foray into the onshore through entity American Energy Partners LP published on Wednesday is said to include misinformation, according to a spokesman (see Daily GPI, Aug. 21). McClendon left Chesapeake Energy Corp. on April 1. Later that month Chesapeake executives Henry Hood and Tom Price also departed, and a Chesapeake official said at the time they would be working with McClendon in his new endeavor (seeShale Daily, April 17). Price in fact told the The Oklahoman that McClendon had “kindly offered to provide me with an office, and I have accepted…Aubrey and I have worked really well together on trying to do things that benefit Oklahoma City. I think we can continue to do that and hopefully enhance the prosperity of the state as well.” Neither Hood nor Price are said to be part of the new endeavor, said the spokesman. Also, American Energy’s spokesman claimed that neither McClendon nor his associates own the headquarters in Oklahoma City, as state officials had indicated in April.
