Doug Lawler, Chesapeake’s Chief Executive Officer, said, “2013 was a foundational year in which we focused on optimizing our business processes, implementing a disciplined capital budget, decreasing per unit cash costs, selling noncore assets and reducing liabilities. We believe that the impact of these efforts on our capital efficiency and returns will become even more evident in 2014 as we continue to drive well performance up and well costs and per unit cash costs down. In 2014 we plan to reduce drilling and completion costs, before drilling carry credits, by nearly $900 million, while still generating comparable production growth year over year.”
