1 minute

May 11 - U.S. Oil and Gas producer Chesapeake Energy Corp said on Friday that three executives will leave the company, the latest exits this year after it published a new chief executive search and emerged from bankruptcy.

According to a regulatory filing, Frank Patterson will leave at 9 am on Friday with James Webb, general counsel and William Buergler, senior vice president.

The company did not respond to a request for comment from the company.

The Board of Directors treated the departures as business interruption according to the filing.

The changes came after retired Chief Executive Doug Lawler left the company in April. Chesapeake emerged from a controversial bankruptcy restructuring earlier this year.
