Chesapeake CEO Aubrey K. McClendon and Anadarko CEO James T. Hackett are two among several energy executives who help direct two relatively new industry organizations promoting the development of natural gas. ANGA Chesapeake Energy Corp., Anadarko Petroleum Corp., and 23 other US natural gas producers formed the American Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA) in March. ANGA members produce about 9 Tcf of natural gas/year, representing 40% of the natural gas supply in the US. According to CommunityTies (Summer 2009), a quarterly publication from Chesapeake, the company has pledged US $8 million/year toward the organization’s $100 million goal of promoting the numerous benefits of natural gas. Anadarko CEO Hackett was named as chairman of ANGA on March 15. ACSF This new initiative follows McClendon's successful leadership in promoting natural gas through the American Clean Skies Foundation (ACSF), a Washington, DC-based think tank that promotes greater use of natural gas. ACSF was launched in 2007 "to advance America's energy independence, and a cleaner, low-carbon environment through expanded use of natural gas and renewables."
