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.

Floating LNG

Despite challenging market conditions, global capital expenditure (Capex) on FLNG facilities is forecast to increase significantly over the 2016-2022 period. The protracted oil price downturn has impacted the sanctioning of capital intensive liquefaction units over the last 24 months. However, the need to move towards cleaner sources of energy and diversify gas supply has stimulated the floating regasification market – over 14 countries are expected to commission their first floating import unit over the forecast period. Against this backdrop, SMi’s 5th annual Floating LNG conference will provide attendees with strategic insight on the latest developments within the FLNG market to optimise activities and ensure project sustainability and success. The two-day programme will also equip you with the tools to overcome the logistical, financial, technological and economic challenges associated with FLNG deployment and ensure succinct transition from design to operation.
