  • Carrizo upsizes with Delaware Basin purchase

    Equities | 30 June 2017

    With oil in retreat and sector valuations hammered, now would seem an unusual time for E&Ps to make opportunistic acquisitions. And to the casual observer, it is – recent activity has been limited to sponsor exits of deepwater explorer Kosmos Energy and RSP Permian in May.
