The company operates in the Delaware Basin, a sub-basin of the Permian Basin where it had 15,785 gross acres. It currently operates or owns working interests in 133 oil and gas wells, though, back in March, it announced the suspension of all drilling and completion activity for the rest of 2020. The company was formed in 2017 when KLR Energy Acquisition, a blank check company, acquired Tema Oil & Gas in a deal valued at $445 million.

Amounts owed

At the time of filing, the company owed $226 million on a revolving credit facility. In March the company had drawn $340 million on the revolving credit facility, however it monetized all its hedges for $88 million to pay the balance down. The company also owed  $106 million on second lien 10% Secured Notes due January 2023. The notes are owned by EIG Management Company or its affiliates, an investment firm.

The main terms of the bankruptcy plan are

  • The Secured Noteholders will get 68.60% of the equity in the reorganized company
  • The Secured Noteholders and Tema have agreed to provide a $17.5 million debtor-in-possession financing facility. In return they will get 25.84% of the equity.
  • Tema will get 4% of the equity. This is because, at the time of sale, it had a tax receivable that Rosehill agreed to collect on its behalf, for a 10% administrative fee. At the time of filing, this was valued at $89 million.
  • The Preferred Series A stock holders will get 1.48%, provided none of the stock holders objects to the plan.
