Oil & Gas Lending 2016: Structuring & Restructuring
Prices have steadily declined and oil and gas companies are filing bankruptcy in record numbers.

This webinar is a must for any bank that has or is considering loaning against oil & gas assets or has oil and gas loans in their portfolio.

In 2014, the OCC issued a new Oil & Gas Production Lending Handbook to provide guidance on oil & gas production lending, markets, lending structures, types of reserves, associated risks, and, most importantly, supervisory expectations for risk management and expanded examination procedures. Since then, oil prices have steadily declined, and oil and gas companies are filing bankruptcy in record numbers. This webinar will provide bankers with a thorough understanding of oil & gas lending, loan documentation, due diligence and bankruptcy/restructuring issues. It is a must for any bank that has or is considering loaning against oil & gas assets or has oil and gas loans in their portfolio.
