M&A in the oil and gas industry reached the highest 1st quarter level of deal volume in more than a decade due to increased activity in the upstream sector and interest in oil and gas assets by foreign players. Although deal activity was high, the total value of deals dipped compared to the 4th quarter of 2013 due to companies divesting smaller non- core assets, a trend that PwC expects to continue through 2014. For the three month period ending March 31, 2014, there were a total of 43 oil and gas deals with values greater than $50 million accounting for $19.8 billion, compared to 41 deals in the first quarter of 2013. "The first three months of 2014 represented a historic 1st quarter across the board led by deal activity in the upstream sector, including in the Gulf of Mexico and interest from foreign players," said Doug Meier, PwC's US energy sector deals leader. "Divestures continue to be a major source of deal activity, but we are seeing smaller deals taking place; larger portfolio adjustments have already been made. Smaller deals are also happening in the oilfield services sector as a result of companies selectively looking to fill in the white space by adding assets that can increase productivity and reduce costs.” (PwC Press Release – April 30, 2014)  Texas Oil Output Could Surpass All OPEC Nations Except Saudi Arabia By End of This Year. The state’s production, driven mainly by the Eagle Ford Shale and Permian Basin, will reach about 3.4 million barrels per day, propelling Texas past Iraq and Iran, said Greg Leveille, manager for technology program-unconventional reservoirs at ConocoPhillips. Among non-OPEC countries, only Russia, the United States as a whole, China and Canada would exceed Texas’ oil production, making the state the world’s sixth-largest producer.
