US M&A - a liquid market

Report summary

US M&A continues to mirror commodity price dynamics: oil strong, gas sluggish. Liquids focused spend jumped to US$56 billion in 2012 - three quarters of the total. For the first time in a decade, the volume of liquids traded exceeded gas. This dynamic will persist in 2013.
