ENERGY AND INFRASTRUCTURE INSIGHT – AUTUMN 2020 – ISSUE 3 

We are pleased to publish the Third Edition of our Energy & Infrastructure Insight, providing information and analysis of the current issues facing the energy and infrastructure sectors across the globe.

In this latest edition we examine the European infrastructure market and consider the differing impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on M&A activity by sector and the terms of the deals being agreed. In a similar same vein, we also examine the rationale and processes for monetizing embedded "non-core" infrastructure assets and key issues for sellers and investors and operators.

However, where there is challenge there is also opportunity and, against a background of market unrest caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in more than 20 oil and gas producers filing for bankruptcy already this year, we explore the key considerations for purchasers when buying oil and gas assets from distressed companies.

Not surprisingly, no sector has been left untouched by COVID-19 and this is also true for the mining sector. We ask the question what is it that has the mining industry stopped talking about?

Finally, we focus on matters environmental, which continues to be the focus of real interest and hope and ask whether hydrogen is the answer to clean energy and whether Taiwanese offshore wind is being challenged by headwinds.

We hope you find this latest Edition both interesting and informative.
