Should Husky Energy’s bid for MEG Energy go ahead at the proposed price of C$11 per share, the eventual takeover would be Canada’s fourth largest oilsands sector deal for four years.

The story around this deal is currently developing; please see the Daily Oil Bulletin for updates. Based on the initial September timing of the bid being announced, the current terms would see the total Canadian upstream M&A spend top US$5 billion for the second consecutive quarter.
