Clifford Capital is pleased to announce that Sembcorp’s 225MW Myingyan Independent Power Project (IPP) has been named by TXF as the winner of the Conventional Power Project Financing Deal of the Year 2017.

TXF noted the following in its awards citation:

“A deal that set the template for IPP financings in an unrated country, the Myingyan IPP financing – Myanmar’s debut in the internationally banked long-term project finance market and its first non-recourse financing in the power sector – managed to draw multilateral, commercial lenders and political risk insurance providers into a package which works economically for all.”

Clifford Capital played a key role in the financing of this Project as the Lenders’ Documentation Bank – working with Sembcorp from an early stage to coordinate the development of the financing structure and financing term sheet, advise on bankability issues of the Project and lead lender-side inputs into the Project Agreements which now forms the basis for future IPPs in a key emerging market.

Clifford Capital acted as Bookrunning Mandated Lead Arranger on a US$1.45 billion Senior Secured Term Loan Facility to finance the Cidade de Marica floating production storage and offloading vessel ("FPSO") that will be deployed under a 20 year charter agreement with Petróleo Brasileiro S.A (“Petrobras”) in Brazil. 

Clifford Capital provided a meaningful commitment based on the value of the supply contracts from a number of Singapore-based companies including Dyna-Mac Holdings Ltd which had supplied the topside modules for the FPSO. 

SBM Offshore is an industry leading provider of floating production solutions to the offshore energy industry, with its main focus on the design, supply, installation, operation and the life extension of FPSO vessels. The FPSO is owned by a consortium that includes SBM Offshore, Mitsubishi, Nippon Yusen Kaisha and QGOG Constellation.
