Sept 29 (Reuters) - Chesapeake Energy Corp said it received a subpoena from the U.S. Department of Justice seeking information on the accounting methodology for the acquisition and classification of oil and gas properties.
The natural gas producer said in May that it had received subpoenas and demands for documents from the DoJ and some state government agencies in connection with investigations into possible violations of antitrust laws relating to the purchase and lease of oil and natural gas rights.
Chesapeake had also received subpoenas from the DoJ, the U.S. Postal Service and states, seeking information on the company's royalty payment practices. (bit.ly/2dnnspG)
