On October 2, 2013, we funded a $14.0 million participation in a $180.0 million Second Lien Term Loan (the "Term Loan") to a Houston-based, privately owned, independent oil and gas exploration and production company focused in the Gulf Coast region. Proceeds from the Term Loan were used to acquire producing oil and gas properties in South Louisiana. The Term Loan was issued at a 3% discount, earns interest at the greater of 10.25% or LIBOR + 9.0% per annum and matures on March 27, 2019. We have continued to receive our share of monthly production payments from ATP Oil & Gas Corporation ("ATP"), pursuant to our limited-term overriding royalty interests (the "ORRIs") in ATP's Telemark offshore oil and gas properties, in accordance with the Bankruptcy Court's order and subject to a disgorgement agreement executed in August 2012. As of September 30, 2013, our unrecovered investment in the ORRIs was $30.5 million, and we had received aggregate production payments of $21.7 million subject to the disgorgement agreement, $1.7 million of which was received during the third quarter of 2013. Production payments in the third quarter were lower than in previous quarters in part because production from ATP's Gomez properties ceased on April 30, 2013, and also because production from the Telemark properties was temporarily shut-in for scheduled downstream pipeline maintenance.
