Upstream M&A and the Majors in Asia Pacific: The big sell-off?

Report summary

Asia has played a fundamental role in the growth of the Majors for over 100 years, but could this finally be coming to an end?

With nearly US$40 billion of commercial value tied-up in mature and mid-life assets across Asia, we believe big moves are on the table. Against a backdrop of increasingly assertive NOCs, bureaucratic challenges and license expiries, now seems a logical time to slim down the portfolio. But who will buy these assets? And what will be the consequences for host governments if the Majors do sell?
