CAMAC gets $100M loan for offshore developments in Nigeria

CAMAC Energy Inc. announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, CAMAC Petroleum Limited, has entered into a credit facility with Zenith Bank Plc for a five-year senior secured term loan providing initial borrowing capacity of up to $100 million.

U.S. dollar borrowings under the term loan facility will bear interest at the rate of LIBOR plus 7.5%, subject to a floor of 9.5%.

The security package for the term loan facility includes a legal charge over OMLs 120 and 121 and an assignment of proceeds from oil sales. Proceeds from the term loan facility will be used for the further expansion and development of OMLs 120 and 121 offshore Nigeria, including the Oyo Field.

“This new credit facility provides CAMAC Energy flexible funding at a reasonable cost to continue development of the Oyo Field,” said Earl W. McNiel, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of CAMAC Energy.

“The dramatic increases in production and cash flow we expect to achieve at Oyo will drive near-term growth and enable us to pursue our high-impact exploration program.”
