M&A market update: August 2017 - Total eclipse

M&A market update: August 2017 - Total eclipse

Report summary

August was a mixed month for upstream M&A. Deal count was well below average and only five deals were announced outside of North America. However, Total's US$7.45 billion takeover of Maersk Oil was the biggest Europe-focused deal in over a decade. And BHP's announcement that it will exit US shale puts in play one of largest and most attractive unconventional portfolios to hit the market. In this M&A monthly market update: • A review of upstream M&A trends • A summary of the month’s biggest announced deals • Commentary on the current Deal Pipeline (potential / rumoured deals)
