中国石化新闻网讯 据全球能源新闻网1月5日报道，太平洋钻探公司（Pacific Drilling）宣布，该公司及其每一个债务附属公司已挺过了第11章申请破产程序，这表明该公司顺利完成了资产负债表的重组，并根据美国得克萨斯州南区破产法院于2020年12月21日确认的《破产法》第11章，实施了经修订的太平洋钻探公司及其债务附属公司重组第一修正联合计划。
根据该计划，该公司所有已发行普通股被视为无价值，将不会获得任何回报。根据该计划所设想的重组交易，一旦出现，该公司就有了一个新的母公司——太平洋钻井公司有限责任公司（Pacific Drilling Company LLC），这是一家开曼群岛有限责任公司，其股权由该公司的前债权人及其债务人附属公司所有。

PACIFIC DRILLING COMPLETES RESTRUCTURING AND EMERGES FROM CHAPTER 11
Pacific Drilling announced that the Company and each of its debtor affiliates have emerged from the Chapter 11 process, signaling the successful completion of the Company’s balance-sheet restructuring and the implementation of the Modified First Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization of Pacific Drilling S.A. and its Debtor Affiliates Pursuant to Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code confirmed by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas on December 21, 2020 .
Pursuant to the Plan, all of the Company’s outstanding common shares were deemed to have no value and will receive no recovery. In accordance with the restructuring transactions contemplated by the Plan, upon emergence, the Company has a new parent company, Pacific Drilling Company LLC , a Cayman Islands limited liability company, the equity of which is owned by former creditors of the Company and its debtor affiliates.
“We are pleased to reach completion of this process. Having now emerged from Chapter 11 with a fully de-levered balance sheet, we are well positioned to continue to deliver world class drilling services with our fleet of 6th and 7th generation drillships,” said Bernie G. Wolford , Chief Executive Officer of the reorganized Company.
After emergence, the reorganized Company now operates with a substantially de-levered capital structure, due to the elimination of more than $1 billion of funded debt obligations pursuant to the Plan. The reorganized Company has approximately $100 million in cash on hand, and access to an undrawn $80 million senior secured delayed draw term loan exit facility, to support its ongoing operations.
With best-in-class drillships and highly experienced team, Pacific Drilling is committed to exceeding customers’ expectations by delivering the safest, most efficient and reliable deepwater drilling services in the industry. Pacific Drilling’s fleet of seven drillships represents one of the youngest and most technologically advanced fleets in the world.
