  • Castex gets confirmation on Chapter 11 plan with new deal


    Jun 7 -
    Bankrupt oil and gas driller Castex Energy received approval from a Texas judge for its Chapter 11 reorganization plan after the company presented information about a series of settlements addressing its well operation liabilities. Castex was able to work with its lenders and well operating partners to deal with plugging and abandonment obligations for its 54 onshore and offshore wells, reaching deals that leave behind assets to cover those liabilities while also providing a recovery to unsecured creditors. Under terms of the plan, the prepetition secured lenders have agreed to release their liens on 825,000 shares of stock in Talos Energy held by the debtor that are worth about $13 million under recent trading prices. Those shares would be liquidated by the debtor after its plan confirmation to fund its well plugging and abandonment liabilities. Castex filed for Chapter 11 in early March with nearly $200 million in debt, saying a 2017 reorganization and subsequent $65 million asset sale were insufficient to overcome the prolonged downturn in the oil and gas markets.
