Brunswick surveyed 105 people, including bankers, lawyers, private equity investors, analysts and investment managers specializing in the energy sector.
Overall, more than half of respondents anticipate an increase in M&A activity in the U.S. oil and gas sector in 2015. Driving factors include further decline in global oil prices and a desire to reduce operating costs through deal synergies.
Respondents believe that domestic transactions by strategic buyers in the services and upstream segments will be the main focus of deal activity in 2015.
Nearly two-thirds of respondents see activist investors playing a driving role in M&A in the oil and gas sector.
