U.S. and Canadian oil and gas companies covered by S&P Global Market Intelligence raised roughly $8.47 billion of capital in September, with debt deals contributing $7.21 billion and common stock deals and private placements raking in a combined $1.25 billion. The month's total is nearly double the $4.35 billion collected in the prior month.

Through September, most of the represented oil and gas sectors raised less capital versus the same period a year ago. Only the oil and gas exploration and production companies posted a year-over-year increase after pulling in $30.45 billion year-to-date, compared with $18.37 billion in the same prior-year period. Oil and gas storage and transportation companies raked in $25.21 billion, while oil and gas refining and marketing companies brought in $9.69 billion. Integrated oil and gas companies managed to increase capital collected through the month to $2.27 billion.
