Natural Gas & Petroleum

The Brattle Group evaluates mergers and proposed mergers, provides liability and damage analysis in civil antitrust suits, and investigates alleged anticompetitive behavior. Our work combines thorough factual investigation with rigorous economic analysis.

Our experts have analyzed the effects of increased supplier concentration in petroleum products markets and investigated the effects on product prices of increased concentration in the market for gasoline storage. In Europe, we have presented economic reports to competition authorities concerning almost every major merger in the European natural gas industry since liberalization.
