Stratas Advisors tracked five new oil and gas discoveries, 10 development projects status updates, and 13 major companies E&P assets acquisition and divestiture activities. Notably, total deals of A&D activities this month could amount up to $19 billion in a combined value, which is high compared with the transaction records in previous months.

Five new oil and gas discoveries were made in the following major countries: Yellowtail-1 in Guyana, Dharian-1 ST-3 in Pakistan, Blacktip in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, Karish North discovery in Israel and Corvus in Australia. Total new discovered gas resources could potentially reach around 5 Tcf.

Additionally, many existing development projects posted new progress including announcements of conceptual, FEED, final investment decision, EPC, first production, and operatorship and partnership working interests change.

Development projects on Stratas’ radar by region include the South Disouq in Africa; the Clair, the Mariner and the ACG Deep Gas Development in Europe; the Kodiak and the Delta House projects in the Gulf of Mexico, and the Cheek project in Mexico; the Sea Lion and the Amoca projects in Latin America; the Dongfang Development project in Asia Pacific.
