TOTAL E&P Barnett USA, LLC is proud to increase our ownership and presence in the Barnett Shale.   Since 2009, TOTAL has had a non-operated working interest in this asset.  Over the coming months, Chesapeake will continue to operate and maintain the asset on behalf of TOTAL, including payments to all royalty owners.  We ask for your patience during this period as we work to transition these activities.
