LONDON, March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Independent Oil & Gas' (IOG) acquisition of a 100% stake in block 48/22a from Swift Exploration for £468,000, reinforces the trend of smaller, more frequent transactions by IOCs, NOCs and independents replacing the days of the mega mergers.
This is highlighted by the statement that 2013 saw $5.73 billon-worth of deals in Europe brokered in 33 deals, a 5-fold increase on deal count from 2012 but a 47% decrease in deal value.
This shift will be explored at the Acquisition and Divestiture Summit, taking place 24-26 March in London. This summit will bring together leading oil and gas companies to explore regional investment, portfolio strategies and tactics in garnering finance.
