I have stumbled across websites for two more new companies that former Chesapeake Energy CEO Aubrey McClendon has formed, Arcadia Capital LLC, and McClendon Energy Partners LP. You can read more here about about McClendon’s new exploration and production company American Energy Partners LP, which is now hiring. 

On its website, Arcadia Capital describes itself  as a “family office that manages investments in oil and natural gas, real estate development and venture capital.”

Will McClendon will use Arcadia Capital to manage his  personal investments? You can read more here about family offices.

McClendon’s  personal holdings  are extensive, including  a 283-acre tree farm in Arcadia,  a $70 million stake in ProCure Treatment Centers, Inc.,  a 19 percent interest in the Oklahoma City Thunder, as well as several restaurants and real estate development projects.

McClendon Energy Partners remains something of an enigma. There’s nothing to see on the website but a blurry shot of McClendon’s torso and gesturing hands.

Somebody out there knows more. E-mail me at bbailey@opubco.com.
