Castleton Commodities International LLC announced the closing of two committed credit facilities totaling $3.75 billion. The facilities include a committed senior secured working capital facility and the company's debut committed unsecured revolving credit facility. The senior secured facility is comprised of a $1.25 billion 3-year tranche and a $2.25 billion 364-day tranche. The unsecured facility is comprised of a single $250 million 364-day tranche. The facilities were significantly oversubscribed, with CCI receiving over $5 billion of commitments for the senior secured facility and over $350 million of commitments for the unsecured facility. A diverse group of 25 banks from 11 countries participated in the facilities, including 8 new banks. CCI elected not to exercise an accordion feature which remains available to support future growth.

The facilities feature numerous amendments intended to facilitate expanded oil trading and international activity.
