Chesapeake Launches $1 Billion Plan To Stimulate Natural-Gas Demand

DOW JONES NEWSWIRES Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK) unveiled a more than $1 billion investment plan aimed at boosting U.S. natural-gas demand, the latest private-sector initiative aimed at fostering consumption of domestic fuel supplies that are expected to jump in coming years. The oil-and-gas company said it will spend at least $1 billion over the next 10 years on a new venture-capital fund dedicated to boosting domestic demand for natural gas. The fund, called Chesapeake NG Ventures Corp., will invest in companies and technologies that spur demand for domestically produced oil, natural gas and natural-gas-to-liquids instead of other oil and diesel fuels. Chesapeake said it plans to redirect about 1% to 2% of its forecast annual drilling budget toward such projects. The company also plans to invest $100 million in newly issued convertible debt of Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (CLNE), a company building natural-gas fueling stations for heavy-duty trucks. Shares of Clean Energy Fuels were recently up 7.9% to $14.15 after-hours Monday. Its stock had been off 19% over the past three months. Chesapeake shares were unchanged at $29.75 after-hours. Chesapeake has already invested in one $50-million tranche of the company's debt, with two more planned for June 2012 and June 2013. The convertible debt carries a 7.5% coupon and a 22.5% conversion premium. Chesapeake also agreed to spend $155 million on a 50% ownership stake in Sundrop Fuels Inc., a biofuels company building a plant capable of producing more than 40 million gallons of gasoline a year from natural gas and waste-plant material. The CNGV investment will be augmented by an added $20 million pro rata investment by venture capital firm Oak Investment Partners, an existing holder of the firm. -By Drew FitzGerald, Dow Jones Newswires; 212-416-2909; Andrew.FitzGerald@dowjones.com
