Chief Oil & Gas Announces Voluntary Disclosure of Marcellus Shale Hydraulic Fracturing

September 1, 2010

Reports to be completed by well and available to the public via company website

DALLAS, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Chief Oil & Gas LLC (“Chief”) today announced a voluntary disclosure initiative of Marcellus Shale hydraulic fracturing additives. Starting on October 1, Chief will voluntarily submit to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) and West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) detailed information about additives used in the completion process of hydraulic fracturing natural gas wells that Chief operates in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

“It is our hope that this voluntary disclosure of the additives used at each well site, along with the volumes, dilution factors and classifications will help alleviate the public’s concern and increase the open, honest and transparent communication that has been a Chief value since its start in 1994,” said Michael Radler, Chief Operating Officer.

“The Marcellus Shale is an enormous opportunity for all who live miles above it and Chief is fully committed to working to achieve the proper balance while developing this game-changing U.S. natural gas resource. Our commitment includes working together with the communities around our operations; respecting and protecting all natural resources; repairing, sometimes in advance, the roads we travel with our trucks and equipment; a focus on hiring locally which includes working with education and training initiatives and our decade-long dedication to community outreach and education. To date, Chief has hosted or participated in hundreds of community education events throughout the Marcellus Shale and has hosted more than 200 field tours of Chief operations to showcase shale drilling and production.”
