Oil and gas companies, oil and gas service companies, law firms, financial service companies, and government institutions, have all been calling for competitive advantage through mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in Malaysia. In recent times, Malaysian oil and gas service companies have been adversely hit by the low oil price regime. Petronas, the leading national oil company of Malaysia, has cut down significantly on the awarding of new production sharing contracts (PSCs) and risk sharing contracts (RSCs). Apart from investment on brownfield projects, final investment decision (FID) on upstream greenfield projects are likely to be deferred. The Asia-Pacific region’s upstream expenditure in 2016 is expected to decrease by 33% compared to 2015 levels (it declined by 21% compared to 2014 levels).
At the same time, the Asia-Pacific region is a net oil importer, importing around 75% of its oil requirements. This trend is expected to continue.
As a result, service companies have a greater challenge in keeping their revenue streams growing. Consolidation could provide a solution in these tough times and lead to major advantages like economies of scale, geographic diversification, and integration. This study provides an analysis of the expected M&A themes in the oil and gas industry over the course of the next decade and beyond. The Global Energy and Environment Research Team at Frost and Sullivan also picks the top sectors and the top 16 companies in the oil and gas services sector in Malaysia which are ripe for consolidation.
