Oasis Petroleum Inc. Announces Amendments To Its Pending Consent Solicitations And A Further Extension

HOUSTON, Oct. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Oasis Petroleum Inc. (NYSE: OAS) ("Oasis" or the "Company") announced today that it is amending and extending its previously announced consent solicitations respecting amendments (the "Amendments") to the indentures (the "Indentures") governing its outstanding 7.25% Senior Notes due 2019 (CUSIP No. 67415AC2), 6.5% Senior Notes due 2021 (CUSIP No. 674215AD0) and 6.875% Senior Notes due 2023 (CUSIP No. 674215AE8) (collectively, the "Notes").

Oasis is modifying the terms of the Amendments that it is seeking to its Indentures. The principal modification is to cap the amount of the borrowing base in the basket for secured credit facilities indebtedness in the Indentures at its current amount, $1.525 billion. Other modifications include adding, deleting or revising several defined terms or other provisions in the Indentures, generally to restrict Oasis' ability to incur second-lien indebtedness. As modified, the Amendments are set forth in full in Oasis's Amended and Restated Consent Solicitation Statement, dated October 21, 2015, which is being sent to all holders of the Notes eligible to consent to the Amendments.

Oasis is also further extending the consent solicitations. Each consent solicitation will now expire at 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Monday, October 26, 2015, unless further extended (the "Expiration Date"). Each consent solicitation remains conditioned on the receipt of consents from holders of record as of October 5, 2015 (the "Record Date") of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the Notes of each series (the "Requisite Consents"). Currently, $400,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of the Notes of each series is outstanding.

The Company will, promptly after the Expiration Date with respect to any consent solicitation and the satisfaction or waiver of all conditions to such consent solicitation, pay to each holder of Notes who has delivered (and not revoked) a valid consent in favor of the Amendments a cash payment (the "Consent Fee") of $10.00 for each $1,000 principal amount of Notes in respect of which such consent has been delivered.
