Aegean Marine goes back to Mercuria for salvation

Bust Greek maritime fuel provider Aegean Marine Petroleum Network has found a new restructuring partner in the form of Mercuria Energy Group after a rival deal with Oaktree Capital Management collapsed. Aegean had been in discussions with Mercuria earlier this year before Oaktree jumped ahead of the queue.

Aegean Marine filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month after a massive fraud of up to $300m was unearthed at the company.
