Erin Energy Corporation

The firm currently represented the unsecured creditors’ committee in the chapter 11 cases of Erin Energy and its affiliates. Erin Energy is an E&P company with assets in multiple countries, including Nigeria. Litigation with a subsidiary of the international oil and gas company Eni SpA resulted in the shutdown of Erin Energy’s Nigerian operations, its default on certain debt, and, ultimately, its chapter 11 filing. The committee concluded that the company did not have a viable plan to restructure its operations in chapter 11 and moved successfully to convert the case to chapter 7.
