How has energy sector M&A activity fared in 2020 and what can we expect in 2021?
In 2020, despite a positive start for energy Exploration & Production M&A activity on the UKCS, the COVID-19 pandemic, followed by the oil price crash and the widespread calls for a ‘green recovery’, led to a dip in M&A activity and increasing uncertainty about the future of the sector. However, by the latter half of 2020, M&A activity in oil and gas began to resume, and opportunities are likely to continue into 2021. On the renewables side, the start of unsubsidised deployment in onshore wind and solar in 2020 has led to buyers and sellers collaborating on new deal structures to support investment in new assets and the transfer of those assets into new long-term ownership.
In our latest news analysis, Clare Munro, partner at Brodies LLP, discusses the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on the M&A energy market (both in the E&P and renewables subsectors) throughout 2020. She also gives her opinion of what opportunities and challenges 2021 will offer and the growing importance of collaboration in the market.
