MEXICO CITY— Mexico's Vista Oil & Gas has raised 2.031 billion pesos (US$107 million) in a primary public share offering to help finance development of shale oil projects in Argentina, the firm said on July 26.
Vista said in a statement it had placed 11.5 million shares in a simultaneous offer on the Mexican and New York stock exchanges, priced at 176.58 pesos each.
The share offering, the first so far this year in the local market, was coordinated by Citigroup Global Markets and Credit Suisse Securities, the company said.
The Anadarko Basin’s Simpson shale formation is being called “one of the biggest yet-to-be-developed shale plays in the United States.”
Leasing hot spots, improved drilling metrics and more reveal some silver lining in the cloud hanging over Midcontinent producers.
