Energy Recap: Oil Rig Count Increases, A New Survey Examines The State Of Credit Lines In The Oil Patch

Welcome to the latest edition of the Energy Recap. This week, we wanted to pass along some interesting data taken from a new energy survey by Haynes and Boone, titled “Borrowing Base Redeterminations Survey: Fall 2016.” According to the firm, the survey seeks to “get a better idea of what lenders, borrowers (producers) and others are expecting regarding upcoming borrowing base re-determinations in light of the price uncertainty in the commodity market.”

We’ve included a couple of key graphs from the survey here, but make sure to click on the above link to check out the entire thing.
