The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday had a report on challenges in Pennsylvania to Chesapeake Energy's calculation of royalty payments, focusing on deductions the company has taken for costs that exceed deductions taken by other producers. It's the latest in a string of similar reports in the Star-Telegram that you can read here, here, and here. You'll run into the Journal's pay wall unless you're a subscriber, but you can read an interview by StateImpact Pennsylvania with Lt. Gov. Jim Cawley here to get the gist.
