Sen. Yaw: Assistance Available For Chesapeake Leaseholders

In light of the recent lawsuit filed against Chesapeake Energy by the state Office of the Attorney General, Sen. Gene Yaw (R-Lycoming) Wednesday said his office will continue to assist local residents with inquiries related to the matter.
According to the OAG, leaseholders are encouraged to forward leases, addendums and royalty stubs directly to the OAG’s Antitrust Section, located on the 14th Floor Strawberry Square, Harrisburg, PA  17120 or call 717-787-4530.
Sen. Yaw also offered assistance in answering general questions and encouraged leaseholders to forward copies of their applicable leases and addendums, along with any records of payment to his office, which he will forward to the OAG on their behalf.
“To date, my office has recorded and sent over 50 leases to the Attorney General’s Office related to the Chesapeake dispute,” Sen. Yaw said.  “Residents who are seeking assistance can continue to reach out and forward related information to my office.”
Last week, the Office of Attorney General announced it has filed a lawsuit against Chesapeake Energy Corp., the country's second-largest producer of natural gas, and its affiliates amid allegations the companies underpaid landowners' royalties associated with natural gas drilling.
The lawsuit, which was filed in the Bradford County Court of Common Pleas, seeks restitution for thousands of consumers, civil penalties and legal costs.  It was the result of an investigation by the Office of Attorney General's Antitrust Section and Bureau of Consumer Protection.
Inquiries and landowner lease information can be directed to: Sen. Gene Yaw, Senate Box 203023, State Capitol Building, Harrisburg, PA 17120, or call 717-787-3280.

  1. Senator Yaw is a Leaseholder himself and has shown his conflict of interest over and over! He has known of these complaints for years, and the contamination of many water wells from fracking in his district and he has dragged his feet, ignored the residents concerns or paid lip service to them long enough. He likely could be named in the lawsuit as a co-conspirator! The AG office should be investigating him and Rep. Garth Everett!

  2. I wouldn't trust Yaw to send in those records! Make copies and send them registered mail Directly to the Atty. Gen. to be sure!

  4. Yaw cannot be trusted with Your Records! If you do send them to him he may be informing his Pals in the industry as to what strategy to use in the upcoming case! Yaw has been working FOR the Frackers for years! If you do send him records, I suggest you make several copies, and send a set directly to AG Office !
