Canada: Gaz Metro Enters into New Credit Agreement

Gaz Metro Enters into New Credit Agreement

Gaz Métro inc. (GMi ) of Canada said that it has entered into a new credit agreement with its bank syndicate providing for a $600 million secured revolving credit facility.

The new credit facility, which replaces the $400 million credit facility originally put in place on December 21, 2004, is guaranteed by Gaz Métro Limited Partnership and is comprised of a revolving loan available to GMi and a swingline loan available to GMi and Gaz Métro, the company said in a statement.

Besides the $200 million increase in the size of the facility and the extended maturity, the terms of the new credit agreement are substantially similar to the agreement previously in place.

The new credit facility is also secured by collateral security backed by the assets of GMi and Gaz Métro.

Gas to Liquids

The volatile oil price has had a dramatic impact on the Gas to Liquids market and some large-scale projects’ operators have struggled to adapt to this unsteady landscape. Over the last 12 months, we have witnessed a few promising projects halt or even shut down altogether. However, whilst some doors have had to close, other doors are opening with interesting emerging markets on the new GTL field. A few companies have discovered ways to significantly reduce operating costs and prove to be commercially viable despite the current economic climate.

Against this backdrop, SMi’s 19th annual Gas to Liquids conference will discuss how GTL companies can work with the tumbling oil price and how they can build robust strategies and create effective alternative solutions to enable them to weather the storm. The programme will have a special focus on small-scale GTL projects, giving you the chance to hear first-hand success stories from leading GTL operators. The two-day event will provide the ideal platform for experts to discuss with peers what companies need in place in order to overcome today’s challenges, with leading industry figures dissecting cutting edge topics, including project financing, marketing of GTL projects and innovative alternative applications of GTL plants.
