M&A activity at the start of 2017 was lacklustre and, although momentum picked up towards the end of the year, global M&A volumes were at their lowest since 2013. Despite this, rumours and announcements of high-profile acquisitions, rising deal values and an increase in strategic acquisitions made 2017 a banner year for M&A activity and gave investors, consumers and journalists plenty to talk about.

Dealmakers are seeing an ongoing build-up of capital poised to flow into the oil and gas sector, as the industry continues to stabilize amid the fallout from a crushing three-year downturn in crude prices. The main sources of cash are private equity firms and other non-bank lenders, while commercial banks maintain a cautious posture toward the energy sector, still nursing wounds inflicted by the oil price bust.
