EXCO Resources says borrowing base cut by 13 pct to $325 mln

EXCO Resources Inc said its
lenders have cut its borrowing base by 13 percent to $325
million amid a slump in oil prices.

Small and mid-sized oil and gas companies are expected to
see large cuts to their credit lines when banks reassess
reserve-based loans this spring in the backdrop of a 60 percent
drop in oil prices.


The cut comes two days after larger producer Whiting
Petroleum Corp said its borrowing base was slashed to
$2.75 billion from $4 billion. (bit.ly/1SwvBnw)
