4 We are pleased to publish the third edition of our Energy & Infrastructure Insight, providing information and analysis of the current issues facing the energy and infrastructure sectors across the globe. In this latest edition, we examine the European infrastructure market and consider the differing impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on M&A activity by sector and the terms of the deals being agreed. In a similar vein, we also examine the rationale and processes for monetizing embedded "non-core" infrastructure assets and key issues for sellers, investors and operators. However, where there is challenge there is also opportunity, and, against a background of market unrest caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in more than 20 oil and gas producers filing for bankruptcy already this year, we explore the key considerations for purchasers when buying oil and gas assets from distressed companies. Not surprisingly, no sector has been left untouched by COVID-19, and this is also true for the mining sector. We ask this question: what is it that the mining industry has stopped talking about? Finally, we focus on the environment as a matter of great interest and hope, and ask whether hydrogen is the answer to sourcing clean energy, and whether Taiwanese offshore wind energy is being challenged by headwinds. We hope you find this latest edition both interesting and informative.
