  • Volatile commodity prices and geopolitical uncertainty could have been important factors in the drop in M&A transaction values in the first quarter.
  • The US shale sector's dominance in terms of deals done reflects the fragmented nature of the industry relative to other global production hotspots.   
  • Energy Intelligence sees higher oil and gas prices as broadly supportive of increased transactions moving ahead but stability will also be important for deal flow.
