1.0 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge

Despite record energy prices and low valuations, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity in the oil and gas (O&G) sector fell by 35% year over year in 2022. Is the O&G M&A playbook changing, and what are the new drivers of strategic deal-making in the O&G industry? We’ll discuss:

  • Strategic influence of energy security and energy transition in deal-making
  • Impact of environment, social, and governance (ESG) on buyer behavior
  • Shift in growth strategy toward clean energy solutions and offerings
  • Role of JVs and partnerships in building capabilities for the future
