From what I can see. CHK has a total debt of $10.6B, their debt to equity ratio is 5.00, this has shot up from 0.64 before the oil crash. I suppose this means that 50% of the company's assets are provided via debt. That seems like a higher number, but just how, high I am not sure. Their free cash flow is at -$3B, and it has been in the negative for the last decade.
I could not find the BEP online, but did see this on threstreet.com,
"Unless there is a marked improvement in the natural gas and oil price environment, Chesapeake is a cheerless proposition. How else would you fathom the alarming figures -- a company with a $2.33 billion market cap and $11.60 billion debt?"
