With oil prices having fallen by more than 50% since June 2014, the oil & gas sector is under a lot of pressure. Join Practical Law and Haynes and Boone LLP for a free 75-minute webinar that will discuss the issues faced by oil & gas companies in 2015 and the outlook for the US energy industry in 2016, including the actions that oil & gas companies can take to weather this period of volatility.

In the webinar, the presenters will discuss:

  • The volatility in oil prices, including the factors causing the significant decline in oil prices over the last 18 months.
  • The impact of low oil prices on upstream oil & gas companies, including:
    • The effect on borrowing bases under reserve-based credit facilities;
    • Transactions with unsecured debt holders designed to improve companies’ capital structures;
    • M&A activity; and
    • Insolvencies and bankruptcies.

A short Q&A session will follow.
