Prices declined precipitously, and oil and gas companies filed bankruptcy in record numbers during 2015 and 2016. In March 2016, the OCC revised its Oil & Gas Production Lending Handbook to expand its guidance on oil & gas production lending, markets, lending structures, types of reserves, associated risks, and, most importantly, supervisory expectations for risk management and examination procedures.
