Navigating Lower 48 M&A opportunities using differentiated data


Navigating Lower 48 M&A opportunities using differentiated data

Report summary

The oil price collapse has cooled what was previously a white-hot market – US Lower 48 M&A deal flow in 2015 was barely a third of 2014’s. Asset valuations now reflect much lower oil price assumptions, making it a good time to buy. But it will not last. Increasing numbers of cash-stressed operators could prove to be attractive counter-cyclical opportunities, not only to more robust operators, but also private equity which has yet to deploy the full extent of its firepower. We use our North America Well Analysis Tool to screen for sample acquisition candidates in the Permian and STACK – the two regions of the L48 still showing demand for acreage deals, albeit only in the right areas.
