Blackstone announced the commencement of the investment period for its second energy-focused private equity fund, Blackstone Energy Partners II, with total commitments of $4.5B.

07:02 EDTBXRentech secures additional loan commitment of up to $63M from GSO Capital
Rentech, Inc. (RTK) announced that GSO Capital Partners LP, the credit investment arm of Blackstone (BX), has increased its credit facility for Rentech by up to $63M. The majority of the proceeds from this new facility are expected to fund completion of Rentech’s Canadian wood pellet projects through positive cash flow. Rentech now estimates the cost to complete the construction of its Canadian wood pellet projects to be $125M-$130M. Rentech expects that the new term loan, together with its other cash resources, will be sufficient to fund its Atikokan and Wawa pellet projects until they have been commissioned and begin to generate positive cash flow. Rentech currently estimates that the cost to acquire and construct the two plants will be $125M-$130M, up from $105M. The majority of the increase is due to delays in construction and higher labor costs for installation of electrical and mechanical components. Rentech expects that working capital and the cost to commission the plants will add approximately $6 to $10 million to the estimated total project cost. Rentech does not expect the plants to generate positive EBITDA or cash flow for the year 2015. Annual stabilized EBITDA projected for both plants remains in line with previous guidance of C$17M-C$20M.
