    Energy M&A on Fire in December

    It's a holiday shopping rush of a different sort — a plethora of energy deals have been announced in December by strategic buyers and private equity firms alike. And the phenomenon will continue, explains Jones Day partner Jeff Schlegel. “There’s something for everyone in the market right now,” he tells Mergers & Acquisitions. Schlegel has advised numerous energy transactions recently, including Access Midstream Partners LP's (NYSE: ACMP) acquisition of Chesapeake Midstream Operating LLC for $2.16 billion and Chevron Pipeline Co.'s selling its Northwest Products Pipeline System to Tesoro Logistics LP (NYSE:TLLP) for $400 million. Though deals might slow down at the start of 2013 because so many are closing before 2012 ends, the demand for energy will stay strong, he adds. — ALLISON COLLINS
