Oil & Gas Mergers and Acquisitions Report – Yearend 2011
A resurgent North American energy industry changes the game around the globe
The value of Oil & Gas merger and acquisition (M&A) activity picked up during the second half of 2011, after a relatively slow start to the year. A key driver of activity continued to be the growth and development of North American unconventional energy sources. As production from these sources increases, the need for investment in other industry segments such as midstream and oilfield services has grown, creating plenty of opportunity and activity. The need for large investments to develop and transport new sources of energy is expected to set the stage for an active domestic energy deal market in the years ahead.
Deloitte has prepared the 2011 Yearend Report, Oil & Gas Mergers and Acquisitions: A resurgent North American energy industry changes the game around the globe which covers deals from the past year by subsector. This report reveals the insights of Deloitte M&A specialists on what is driving deals, and what this says about how the business is changing.
