Enron: fraud is fraud, trading is trading

The utility industry should make every effort to stress that Enron's fraud and subsequent collapse were not the consequence of its core business of electricity trading - nor even the unethical practice of 'round trading'. The Enron issue is holding back the electricity trading market - one of the key supports to electricity market liberalization.

Enron: on the floor but still fighting

Enron may be going down, but not without a fight. It's trying to recapitalize its wholesale energy business so it can keep trading, while also suing Dynegy for $10 billion for pulling out of their planned merger. The suit looks unlikely to succeed, but it does look likely to undermine Dynegy's cut-price purchase of Enron's most valuable asset.

Enron: the end is nigh as Dynegy pulls out

Enron was in an even worse state than Dynegy realized. Now its rival has pulled out, the company has little chance of avoiding the US' largest ever bankruptcy. Dynegy will gain Enron's Northern Natural Gas pipeline at a bargain basement price, and there should be plenty of opportunity for other players across the world to buy Enron's assets.

Enron: trading business is going, going, quick

Time is definitely not on the company's side. It needs to regain quickly customers' confidence and prevent further deterioration in the operations' value. Interested parties may seek a foothold in the booming energy industry - or perhaps simply want access to quality personnel. Nevertheless, holding an auction in early January is the only sensible way to keep the business intact over Christmas.<BR />

Europe's gas industry need not worry over talk of OPEC-style cartel

Recent comments by the head of Russia's parliamentary gas committee calling for the formation of an OPEC-like gas producers' cartel further highlight Europe's decreasing security of supply. However, while such a move would be potentially beneficial to producers and detrimental to consumers, it remains an unlikely development given the practicalities involved.

European energy: falling behind US in securing supplies

Securing energy supplies has been the focus of recent political summits, including the March 2007 meeting of EU heads of state. Nevertheless, while the US government has prompted the first boom in nuclear plant build for nearly 30 years, the EU is yet to establish such a framework. In addition, while only 20% of US gas is imported, EU gas imports are set to pass the 50% mark for the first time.
