M&A Trends for the Energy and Industrial Sectors (June 2014)

  1. 1. Sector Update | June 2014 phone 972.831.1300 | web WS-iBank.com Energy & Industrial Sector Observations  Upstream merger, acquisition activity hits record $39bn in Q1 2014. Not only was deal volume up 75% over Q1 2013, but the quarterly deal count of 116 was up 24% over Q1 2013. Oil and gas M&A deals in North America reached its highest level since Q4 2012. According to a recent CBO Capital report, “North America has emerged as the world’s most popular destination for lucrative upstream M&A transactions. The North American deal market reflects the impact of large capital needs on resource play development.” Last quarter, shifting buyer profiles were evident. Smaller, alternative buyers and private equity groups were prominent. M&A activity of small exploration and production companies accounted 86% of deals in Q1. (Business Day – May 21, 2014)  Permian Basin oil production expected to continue. At Hart Energy’s Permian Basin Conference in Fort Worth, Pioneer Natural Resources CEO Scott Sheffield and other notable petroleum analysts said they have an optimistic outlook for oil production levels in the Permian Basin, which already produces 1.5 million barrels of oil per day. Darrel Koo, an energy researcher at ITG Investment Research in Canada, predicts that the Permian Basin’s oil production will grow to 2.5 million barrels per day, which includes oil prices at around $90 a barrel, by 2025. Koo says with higher prices and other favorable conditions that could rise even higher to 3.2 million barrels per day. Eagle Ford Shale and Bakken Shale have also grown to more than a million barrels per day, but Sheffield expects those fields to peak between 2016 and 2020 and the Permian Basin to keep climbing. The Permian Basin covers the same surface area as the Bakken, but its oil-bearing formations are much thicker. The formations are stacked atop one another for thousands of feet, promising growth as each is explored and developed.
