How to Contact the Board

Our Director Access Line, available by calling 866-291-3401, allows our shareholders and other interested parties to leave messages for individual directors or our entire board. All calls are promptly reviewed and forwarded to the appropriate contact.

You can also send us email or send written communications to:

Chesapeake Energy Corporation Board of Directors
c/o Jim Webb, Executive Vice President – General Counsel and Corporate Secretary
P.O. Box 18496
Oklahoma City, OK 73154

All mail will be screened for security purposes. Depending upon the subject matter, the corporate secretary will:

  • Handle the inquiry where director input is not necessary, such as a request for information about the company, employment, charitable giving, vendor relations or other topics unrelated to the board's duties
  • Forward the communication to the directors
  • Not forward the communication if it clearly relates to an inappropriate, irrelevant or commercial topic
  • Provide a report of all material communications and their disposition to the directors at the next regular quarterly board meeting
