HOUSTON—Already known as a pioneer of the U.S. shale revolution, Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy Corp. is aiming to continue its legacy as a trailblazer in the oil and gas industry.

“We will be one of the first operators and hope to be the first operator to have responsibly sourced gas in two major shale basins—the Gulf Coast and Appalachia production,” Morgan Hager, vice president of HS&E at Chesapeake Energy Corp., said during an opening keynote address at Hart Energy’s Energy ESG Conference. “This will result in approximately 3 billion cubic feet per day of responsibly sourced gas.”

What does that mean? According to Hager, Chesapeake’s production of 3 Bcf/d of natural gas means that approximately 11 million homes in the U.S. will be able to heat their homes and have electrical power with independently certified responsibly sourced gas.
