Operators need well data & analytics as ESG drives more M&A

Updated: Jun 24, 2022

DENVER, CO – May 11, 2022. As the federal government moves toward requiring carbon emission reporting and transparency for the energy industry, a carbon tax also appears to be closer to reality. When this kind of transformative regulation and change has taken place historically across industries in the US from telecom and media to consumer packaged goods, the result has been an increase in consolidation through M&A. Companies that are not planning ahead often get acquired, face severe penalties resulting in significant losses, and some even go bankrupt.

Similarly, energy operators will have to adjust or consider divesting or merging assets. Competitive intelligence and industry data are critical to those companies looking to purge on those struggling to adapt. Data relating to well production and how it relates to ESG is at the forefront.

Large public companies are expected to be leaders in improving emissions and transparency and benchmarking against peers is critical. Smaller public companies and private businesses will follow suit, but will need to more rapidly get their houses in order as the SEC’s requirements for emission monitoring and reporting are expected by the end of the year. Private companies have different pressures from their investors, but will still need to adhere to regulations to be considered as viable M&A candidates.
