Not by a long shot... A very Happy New Year to you! A fitting quote for the New Year and state of the upstream oil & gas business reads, "An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves." For many E&Ps, it was perhaps the latter. At EnergyFundz, we see the silver-lininig in cost. Specifically, the falling cost to drill and produce oil and gas. Quora recently had a useful (and short) take on what this has come down to today. In fact, now is an ideal time to grow an oil & gas company. Furthermore, given the ask-bid prices within the sector are finally narrowing, industry experts, such as Wood Mac, feel 2016 will see a significant uptick in upstream M&A.
