JPMorgan Chase Agents Up to $2.4B Revolver for Whiting Petroleum
Friday, April 13, 2018

Lenders/Participants JPMorgan Chase Bank [Administrative Agent]
Structure Revolver Amendment
Amount $2.400 Billion
Borrower(s) Whiting Petroleum Corporation
Description Seventh Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with the lenders party thereto. The Credit Agreement replaces Whiting Oil and Gas’ existing credit agreement. The Credit Agreement provides for a revolving credit facility subject to an initial borrowing base of $2.4 billion, of which the Company has elected to secure commitments of $1.75 billion at closing. As of April 12, 2018, the total amount of loans and letters of credit outstanding under the credit facility was $234.2 million. A portion of the revolving credit facility, in an aggregate amount not to exceed $50 million, may be used to issue letters of credit for the account of Whiting Oil and Gas and other designated subsidiaries of the Company, which outstanding letters of credit were approximately $2.0 million as of April 12, 2018. Whiting Oil and Gas may increase the aggregate amount of the loans under the Credit Agreement by up to $1.25 billion, provided that certain conditions are satisfied, including that no default or event of default exists under the Credit Agreement at the time of the increase and that Whiting Oil and Gas obtains the consent of the lenders participating in the increase. With certain exceptions, the credit facility will mature on April 12, 2023. Interest will accrue on the loans under the Credit Agreement at a variable rate equal to, at Whiting Oil and Gas’ option, either (i) a base rate for a base rate loan, plus a specified margin, where the base rate is defined as the greatest of (A) the prime rate, (B) the greater of (x) the federal funds effective rate and (y) the overnight bank funding rate, plus in each case 0.50% per annum, or (C) the one month adjusted LIBO rate plus 1.00% per annum, or (ii) an adjusted LIBO rate for a Eurodollar loan plus a specified margin. The margin applicable to base rate loans and Eurodollar loans may be adjusted upward or downward based on the ratio of outstanding borrowings to the borrowing base. Under the Credit Agreement, Whiting Oil and Gas will also incur a commitment fee with respect to the revolving facility on the unused portion of the lesser of the aggregate commitments of the lenders or the borrowing base, which commitment fee will be either 0.375% or 0.50% per annum based on the ratio of outstanding borrowings to the borrowing base.
