Oil and Gas Law

Norman Wisely

Edinburgh University Press

This Chapter considers the unique aspects of mergers and acquisitions in the upstream oil and gas industry that deals with the acquisition and disposal of individual or part thereof upstream assets. It focuses in particular upon asset sales for cash consideration and examines in turn acquisition structures, the due diligence process, approvals and consents, pre-emptions and restrictions on assignment and consents and approvals, acquisition agreement, and completion. This Chapter accordingly offers a valuable insight into an area of legal practice about which it is not otherwise easy to gain information.

Keywords:   Mergers and acquisitions, asset acquisition, asset disposal, acquisition structures, pre-emption, due diligence, approvals and consents, farm-in, acquisition agreements, completion
