Distressed Oil & Gas: Survival Tactics and Smart Investing During COVID-19 - McDermott Will & Emery

Distressed Oil & Gas: Survival Tactics and Smart Investing During COVID-19


COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc on the global economy, and the oil & gas industry in particular is experiencing significant turmoil as demand has plummeted. Whether you are a company directly dealing with this economic instability, an investor concerned with protecting your portfolio or a supplier to the industry, there are actionable steps to consider now that will impact long-term viability and preserve value.

On Tuesday, June 30 McDermott will host Russell Mason, Director at Houlihan Lokey, and Scott Pinsonnault, Senior Managing Director at Ankura, to discuss how oil & gas companies, their investors and partners are navigating the current landscape, including:

  • COVID-19-related market disruption and ensuing effects to the downstream, midstream and upstream segments;
  • Strategies for navigating operational concerns;
  • How to manage insolvency and financial distress issues; and
  • Examination of contracts—including, but not limited to, gas gathering agreements and PPAs—under distressed circumstances.
