Middle East and North Africa M&A - risky business

Middle East and North Africa M&A - risky business

Report summary

Although home to the world's largest hydrocarbon reserves, upstream M&A activity in the Middle East and North Africa has historically been relatively modest. State control of resources, political constraints and limited entry opportunities in the most prospective areas restrict the market. Direct negotiation for DROs and exploration are the main routes to accessing opportunities of scale.
