Transaction Support




The Energy and Natural Resources industries have experienced significant change over the past five years – the underlying commodity price and margin environment has been volatile and many parts of the industry value chain have experienced structural changes in terms of sources of supply, patterns of demand and corporate ownership.

Much of this change has resulted in M&A activity, enabling companies to adjust their portfolios to meet the challenges, or to capture the opportunities of the evolving energy landscape.
