Eike Batista's flagship OGX Petroleum (OGXPY.PK) has asked creditors for ~$300M in new capital as it faces a debt restructuring and operational struggles, WSJ reports.

The sides will continue to hash out negotiations, and as they get closer to a compromise some creditors may sign confidentiality agreements enabling them to make a deal, sources say.

OGX is seeking fresh capital from creditors as part of talks to restructure its $3.6B in outstanding debt, CEO Eduardo Carneiro said yesterday.
