With traditional capital virtually closed to much of the upstream oil and gas industry and loan terms tightening by the day, producers are looking for alternative ways to finance their operations and potential acquisitions. One innovative solution would be to tap the securitization market for new sources of debt capital. While similar in structure to other types of securitizations and similar in principle to other upstream financing vehicles, the uniqueness of oil and gas as an asset class for securitization creates new challenges.
Join Latham & Watkins for a discussion on the key issues, considerations, and potential solutions affecting this new type of securitization, including:
- Structuring concerns
- Hedging considerations
- Issues regarding operated vs. non-operated assets
- Conveyancing methods and issues
