Spain’s Repsol to Buy Rockdale Marcellus Assets in $222 Million Bankruptcy Sale

Rockdale Marcellus, which filed for bankruptcy in September, was formed with the acquisition of Shell’s operated Marcellus properties in Tioga, Lycoming and Bradford counties in Pennsylvania.


Spain’s Repsol has bought shale oil and gas assets from U.S. firm Rockdale Marcellus for $222 million, a company spokesperson said, confirming a report from Marketline.

Repsol will pay $220 million in cash and assume an additional $2 million in debt, he said. The assets were sold by Rockdale Marcellus as part of a Chapter 11 process.

The assets are located near an area in Pennsylvania where Repsol already operates a shale field.
