美国首家大型页岩生产商申请破产保护

中国石化新闻网 2020-04-03

中国石化新闻网讯 据原油新闻2020年4月1日休斯顿报道,美国巴肯石油和天然气生产商怀廷石油公司4月1日表示,由于近期油价暴跌,怀廷石油公司已申请破产保护,从而成为美国第一家申请破产保护的大型页岩生产商。

根据周三发布的新闻稿,重组计划旨在将怀廷石油公司的资本结构减债超过22亿美元。

怀廷石油公司“将继续正常运营其业务,不会对其供应商、合作伙伴或员工造成实质性影响”。

怀廷石油公司在新闻稿中表示,该公司目前预计将有足够的流动资金,可以满足其在重组期间的财务义务,而不需要额外的融资。

由于疫情影响导致需求大幅下降,而沙特和俄罗斯为争夺市场份额而发动的油价战使市场上的原油供应进一步增加,全球油价自1月下旬以来已大幅下跌。

尽管基准期货价格已跌至20美元/桶的低位,但美国页岩油现货价格的跌幅甚至更大,这是因为炼油商已削减开工率,而库存已满额。

怀俄明州根西岛的巴肯原油价格仅为13.27美元/桶,比俄克拉荷马州库欣的西德克萨斯中质原油价格低12.50美元/桶。

由于油价暴跌,美国数十家上游企业已经削减了今年的资本支出指导,包括怀廷石油公司。

Whiting the first big US producer to file for bankruptcy due to recent price collapse

Bakken oil and gas producer Whiting Petroleum filed for bankruptcy, the company said Wednesday, the first big shale producer to file for Chapter 11 protection due to the recent price collapse.

The reorganization plan is intended to deleverage Whiting's capital structure by over $2.2 billion, according to a Wednesday news release.

Whiting "will continue to operate its business in the normal course without material disruption to its vendors, partners or employees," the company said in its release. "Whiting currently expects to have sufficient liquidity to meet its financial obligations during the restructuring without the need for additional financing."

Global oil prices have tumbled since late January, as the spread of the coronavirus has drastically reduced demand, while a war for market share launched by Saudi Arabia and Russia has put even more crude on the market.

While benchmark futures prices have fallen into the low $20s/b, spot US shale crude prices have fallen even lower, as refiners have cut runs, while storage has begun to fill.

Bakken crude priced at Guernsey, Wyoming was assessed at just $13.27/b Tuesday, for instance, a $12.50/b discount to WTI at Cushing, Oklahoma.

Dozens of upstream companies have already slashed capital spending guidance for 2020 because of low oil prices, including Whiting.
