The value of global M&A activity compared to the value of all oil & gas assets worldwide amount to around 3%. This represents an average, annual portfolio transaction level for the world’s E&P companies.

North American M&A activity have accounted for 50-60% of global activity during the last years. In 2010 North American M&A activity is at about twice the share of the region’s share of global asset values in 2010. South America in 2010 also had a higher share of M&A activity compared to the region’s share of global asset values.

Other regions, Europe, Africa and Middle East, and Asia-Pacific in particular, have lower than average portfolio trading in 2010.
