Investment in Energy: Opportunities in Oil and Gas

April 29, 2015

In a relatively brief period, the oil and gas investment landscape has shifted enormously. Asset valuations in the upstream and parts of the midstream have plummeted and sales have been canceled. Many investors have been on the sidelines, raising funds and looking at opportunities but waiting for “bottom” to occur before jumping in. Rapid change such as that occurring in the oil and gas markets presents opportunities, as well as risks, and now is the perfect time to assess both.

We discussed this and more at our webinar on April 29. Topics included:

  • Upstream oil and gas: state of the market and valuations
  • Upstream and midstream oil and gas: special considerations when investing in the current environment, including distressed company transactions
  • Midstream/downstream oil and gas: state of the market and valuations
  • Downstream oil and gas: special considerations when investing
  • Investment in publicly traded independent oil companies: special considerations, activist strategies, hostile bids, and recent trends
