Energy - Mergers and Acquisitions

Canada’s energy industry has undergone consolidation over the last several years and it’s unlikely that trend will change anytime soon. With growing demand for the transition to more energy efficient production and fluctuating demand for fuel, companies will continue to look to M&A in order to thrive.

Energy–related transactions are often complex as many regulations govern the sector, including ones related to the environment and Indigenous land use. There are also competition and antitrust issues to consider and cross-border challenges to navigate.

Osler’s Oil and Gas Group has decades of transactional experience in this sector. We work with businesses from across the spectrum, such as multinational exploration and production companies, infrastructure operations, private equity and pension funds, mid-market energy businesses and multi-party consortiums.
