With more than $110 billion of oil and gas assets on the block as companies big and small count the cost of the collapse in oil prices, it is now a question of who will blink first to set the M&A scramble in motion.Energy groups with spare cash, venture capital funds and multinational and state oil companies are eyeing assets with valuations that have largely tracked the halving of the oil price to less than $50 a barrel since last June.But with the exception of a few recent moves, including Repsol's $3 billion acquisition of Talisman Energy, buyers have largely stayed on the sideline

US drilling is now in free fall. With rigs being indiscriminately released by operators, the US rig count posted its largest weekly decline in 6 years, falling 86 rigs last week. Given the speed of the collapse and commentary from E&P companies and land drillers last week, more draconian cuts and budget revisions than initially expected are playing out.
