Data and information included in this report were subject to internal review and are believed to be correct at the time of reporting. Data reflects year-end calculations and may include divested assets until divestitures’ closing dates. For certain reporting elements, later changes in categorization could affect data after publication.

(1) To align with the 10-K filing and to better represent the current production profile of the company the units for this metric have changed from mmboe to bcfe.
(2) For the 2022 reported value and forward taxes incurred will be reported on a net basis.
(3) To align with the 10-K filing the employee headcount has been rounded.
(4) For the 2022 reported value and forward charitable giving will reflect financial contributions only.
(5) Emissions estimate developed under the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (operated onshore production, Brazos Valley sand mine, and gathering and boosting facilities).
(6) Chesapeake calculates its reported emissions using EPA eGRID emissions factors.
(7) Chesapeake reports our estimated indirect Scope 3 emissions on an equity basis using Category 11 of the Estimating petroleum industry value chain (Scope 3) greenhouse gas emissions reporting guidance developed by IPIECA / API (2016). The calculation methodology applies the EPA’s emission factors for listed fuel types; representing indirect end use greenhouse gas emissions of the products created from our crude oil and natural gas.
(8) Calculation methodology revised for 2022 reporting to better reflect actual performance. Historical years shown here have been recalculated consistent with the new methodology to allow for consistent comparison.
(9) Volumes reported are based on World Resource Institute’s Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas annual water stress criteria.
