In a recent lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania
against Chesapeake Energy Corporation, it has been alleged that the
company is underpaying royalties to leaseholders by deducting the
price of pipelines, compressor stations and other costs associated

determine whether energy companies are engaging in practices
similar to those alleged by these lawsuits.
