Chief operating officer named for American Energy units

American Energy Partners LP, Oklahoma City, has appointed John K. Reinhart as the chief operating officer of affiliates American Energy–Utica LLC (AEU) and American Energy–Marcellus LLC (AEM).

Reinhart previously spent 8 years working in various capacities for Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy Corp., including vice-president, operations, eastern division; and senior vice-president, operations and technical services.

As vice-president, operations–eastern division, he led the start-up, growth, and development of Chesapeake’s Marcellus and Utica shale assets from initial gross operated production levels of 5 MMcfd of gas in 2009 to more than 2.5 bcfd of natural gas and 24,000 b/d of oil, helping make Chesapeake the largest oil and gas producer in Appalachia.

As senior vice-president, operations and technical services, he led 1,400 employees who provided technical and operational services in land, supply chain, marketing, and operational-technical services that executed development strategies for the company’s asset teams.

AEU and AEM have respectively built positions in the southern Utica of eastern Ohio and Marcellus of northern West Virginia (OGJ Online, Aug. 5, 2014). The affiliates plan to drill more than 3,000 gross wells in Ohio and West Virginia over the next decade, comprising a planned investment of $20-25 billion in the two states.
