Aurora Oil & Gas Ltd. reportedly put in a bid of $109 million to acquire Eureka Energy Ltd., reports Bloomberg.
Jon Stewart, the CEO of Aurora, said that such moves were likely to keep coming for his company.
"With the poor natural gas price in North America there are a lot of capital-constrained companies over there," he told the news source. "The volume of opportunities coming across our desk has really escalated."
In early April, prices of natural gas futures fell below $2 per million British thermal units, which is as low as they've been in 10 years. In addition to leading companies like Aurora to look at potential deals, these low prices have spurred much talk about the creation of LNG terminals in the U.S.
These LNG facilities would allow producers of natural gas in America to potentially exploit foreign markets with high demand for the hydrocarbon. Japan - the world's leading importer of LNG - had natural gas prices of around $16 per mBtu earlier this year.
