Upstream Oil & Gas M&A: Co-operation for innovation

07 February 2018 | Global
Legal Briefings


In 2017 we saw a continuation of the upturn in upstream M&A which began in late 2016. The oil & gas industry has been through a sustained period of focus on cost cutting but, as the oil price stabilises, many players are now seeing an opportunity to refocus on growth. In this atmosphere of cautious optimism, they are seeking to rationalise their portfolios in preparation for the coming years – balancing field life, development profile and geopolitical exposure. We think these factors will support the continued upward trend in upstream M&A in 2018.
