Oil and Gas Continues to Crack

Long Houston-Based Hotels

The bankruptcy waiting room is becoming standing room only for oil and gas companies despite oil resting near 2019 highs (even after a rough 2% decline on Friday). We’ve previously mentioned Jones Energy ($JONE)Sanchez Energy Corporation ($SN)Southcross Energy Partners LP ($SXEE)Vanguard Natural Resources, Alta Mesa Holdings LP ($AMR) and Chaparral Energy Inc. ($CHAP) in “⛽️Is Oil & Gas Distress Back?⛽️.” Based on earnings reports or other SEC filings this week, add Emerge Energy Services LP ($EMES), EP Energy Corporation ($EPE) and Approach Resources Inc. ($AREX) to the list.

Emerge Energy Services experienced some wild stock fluctuation this week after it filed a Form 12b-25 with the SEC indicating that was unable to timely file its FY 2018 Form 10K. Therein, the company stated that it has been distracted by negotiations with its revolving credit facility agent, PNC Bank NA, and second lien note purchase agreement agent, HPS Investment Partners LLC, on several forbearance agreements and amendments to the two agreements. Tee this baby up for a potential BK.
