A winding up petition has been scheduled against Hong Kong listed Brightoil Petroleum (Holdings) Limited at a Hong Kong court on 6 March 2019, reports the South China Morning Post.
The petition has been organised by a company called Broad Action; it is unclear how this firm is connected to Brightoil.
The winding up petition, if successful, could mean the liquidation of Brightoil’s assets in order to pay off debt.
Meanwhile, the latest Brightoil hearing of a winding up petition initiated by Petrolimex has been scheduled to take place at the High Court of the Republic of Singapore on Friday (18 January).
The upcoming session will likely focus on the approval of a moratorium order, to be applied under Section 211B of the Companies Act, that seeks to protect Brightoil Petroleum (S'pore) Pte Ltd against other forms of legal challenges while it undergoes restructuring.
