    US shale companies could be forced to write down at least $300bn of their assets in the second quarter, as operators begin to account for the oil-price collapse on their balance sheets, according to a new study.

    The huge impairments — about half the net value of the companies’ property, plant and equipment — would increase the sector’s leverage from 40 per cent to 54 per cent, triggering insolvencies and restructuring, says the study by Deloitte, an accountancy.

    “The boom in fracking was largely financed by debt,” said Mohsin Meghji, head of M-III Partners, a restructuring adviser working with some bankrupt shale producers.

    But investors have now soured on shale. Wall Street is unlikely to fund a new recovery or pay for the consolidation analysts say the sector needs.

    “There was a sense that capital markets were going to dry up,” even before the crash, said Mr Sanderson. “Now the window is completely closed.”

    ❗️❗️❗️TAKE ACTION❗️❗️❗️

    Financing Abbot Point means supporting the Carmichael coal export project.

    Tell these companies that they must rule out further financing of Abbot Point and other Adani companies.

    ❗️❗️❗️TAKE ACTION❗️❗️❗️

    Tell these companies to stop pursuing coal power in Matarbari

    In the wake of the fiercest storm Bangladesh has experienced this century, Japanese financial institutions and coal developers are trying to push three new coal power stations.

      I get your point, but there are some things that are “not good enough” for some situations which can still be improvements for people in other situations…just not coal plants.
