Lagos - Seven Energy International Limited, the independent Nigerian integrated oil and gas company, said it had secured debt funding to the tune US$52 million to finance its operations.
The company stated that it together with certain of its wholly-owned subsidiaries had entered into two separate debt facilities, each with a sole lender, both of whom are prominent European institutions, for a combined debt, with up to a six year tenor.
The facilities will be used to fund the Group’s ongoing development projects and working capital requirements.
“These facilities will rank pari passu for security with, and have substantially the same covenants as, the Senior Secured Loan Notes issued in October 2014,” the company stated.
