The USD2.7 billion inter-conditional restructuring of Premier Oil plc and its all share merger with Chrysaor Holdings Limited completed on 31 March 2021 and is expected to create the largest independent oil and gas company listed on the London Stock Exchange.

As previously announced A&O advised the coordinating group of bank creditors.
