Episode 29 – Energy & Infrastructure: What’s Driving the Oil & Gas Evolution in Europe?
Play • 18 min

As commodity prices recover from pandemic lows, deal activity in the oil and gas sector is heating up across Europe. A number of factors are contributing to this deal-friendly environment, most notably the acceleration of the transition to renewable and low-carbon energy and the appetite for such changes in the capital markets. European majors are diversifying rapidly and looking to combine; meanwhile, US majors are surveying the market in Europe. Across the industry, companies continue to search for ways to reduce the carbon intensity of their operations.  All of this creates scope for more and larger mergers. In this episode of Connected With Latham, we continue our Energy & Infrastructure series with a look at the oil and gas industry in Europe and how the focus on energy transition is impacting our traditional oil and gas clients and their organizations. Lauren Anderson, a private equity partner in Houston, speaks with London partners Simon Tysoe and Sam Newhouse and London counsel Evelyne Girio about the evolution of the industry.
