Louisiana

Chesapeake began developing natural gas in Louisiana’s Haynesville Shale in 2008 and continues building strong relationships with the region’s leaders and residents. Since the development of the Haynesville Shale, nine Northwest Louisiana parishes have become significant drivers for the state's economy and royalty owners. We remain committed to supporting the communities where we live and work while reducing our environmental footprint through efficient drilling, reduced air emissions and less surface activity.
