 Chief executive Jón Ferrier said: "Upon completion of the Restructuring we will be able to effectively relaunch Gulf Keystone.  We will benefit from an enhanced balance sheet, a well understood field which continues to perform above expectations and a clear path to significantly increasing production and growing value over time.
