Chesapeake has used an expanded definition of the "force majeure" clause -- typically used in contracts to denote unforeseeable, catastrophic events that hinder production -- to extend lease terms, sometimes indefinitely, for new reasons that go far beyond the "acts of god" traditionally included in such clauses. Now, restrictive local regulations or a lack of transportation equipment may be grounds for a "held lease" -- one that the company continues to operate under past its expiration date.
