Oil major Chevron has entered into a definitive agreement to purchase all of Noble Energy's outstanding shares at a valuation of $5bn. Some have speculated that this could be part of an oncoming wave of post-Covid M&As as majors look to snap up the assets of those unable to weather the pandemic. We investigate. 

Also, in light of Subsea UK's chief executive warning that subsea firms could turn their back on oil and gas work, we find out what the future looks like for the sector. And we talk to Legasea, the UK's subsea company of the year, about their efforts to improve the industry's sustainability.

Elsewhere, we learn about BP's acquisition of geospatial analytics company Satelytics. We also ask what the offshore industry is doing about methane emissions.

Finally, we examine recent setbacks to US pipelines and what they mean for the country, hear from Ocean Infinity about their new Armada initiative and autonomy at scale, and talk to the developer of a new offshore marine facility in Singapore.
