The house that Aubrey built v2.0

When word came down that American Energy Partners, the operation founded by Aubrey McClendon after departing Chesapeake Energy, was winding down toward an orderly end of business, the first thought that went through my head was something along the lines of “Well, at least they’re not filing for bankruptcy.” There have been a lot of restructurings, even a few liquidations, here in the Oil Patch, what with crude ranging from below $50 to way below $50.

My second thought was perhaps a tad more crass: “What happens to that supercool fitness center the company owned?”

But now, having had a night to think it over, what I really wonder was if McClendon had been anticipating this right before driving his Tahoe into a bridge abutment back in March.
