JSOC Bashneft has successfully closed a US$300m crude oil pre-export finance facility. Proceeds are to be applied to general corporate purposes of the company including debt refinance. The transaction represents the first syndicated international credit finance facility raised by Bashneft.
“The pre-export finance facility raised by Bashneft is a logical step towards improving the debt structure of the company,” said Alexander Korsik, president of JSOC Bashneft. “Bb broadening the range of financial instruments, the company diversifies its debt structure and as a result enhances its financial position and lowers the cost of debt.”
The deal was co-ordinated by BNP Paribas (Suisse) and Deutsche Bank. BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs International and ING Bank were appointed as mandated lead arrangers and bookrunners. BNP Paribas, Deutsche Bank, and ING Bank also serve as fixed rate providers.
