Rex Energy Borrowing Base Re-Affirmed for $190M, 2nd Time in 3 Mos.

Rex is a pure play driller focused on the Marcellus/Utica. A company’s borrowing base is the value of its assets–in this case the value of the leases and oil/gas wells Rex owns. Those assets are used as collateral to back up loans and IOUs. Rex has plenty of both (see Rex Energy Swapping $631M in Private IOUs for Public IOUs).
