The case is about Brazil-based business tycoon, Eike Batista (Batista), Chairman of the EBX Group (EBX), who was once among the richest people in the world. The flagship of the group was oil and gas company OGX Petroleo e Gas SA (OGX). There were several publicly held companies under EBX in the areas of mining (MMX), logistics (LLX), electricity and energy (MPX), shipbuilding, leasing, oil and gas services (OSX), and integrated mining project (CCX). All these companies were interlinked and depended heavily on each other.Batista's fortunes rose after the government-owned oil company in Brazil, Petrobras, announced discovery of oil off the Southeast coast of Brazil, and OGX bid for exploration rights in 21 blocks. Surveys conducted by OGX showed that by 2015, oil output from the 51 prospects it planned to drill would be 730,000 b/d.
