Union Fenosa: gassing away

Rumors of a proposed sale of 50% in Union Fenosa Gas to a foreign utility have boosted the parent company's share price by 5.5%. Six companies, including Italy's ENI and the UK's Centrica, are reportedly bidding for the stake. A deal would both cut Union Fenosa's debt burden by E1.6 billion, and improve the gas division's position against incumbent GasNatural.

Rising energy prices, scarce landfill space, and improved pollution control are slowly changing the energy landscape too. Energy from waste should serve the dual purpose of increasing energy security and freeing up landfill space. Utilities must take notice and act now.

UK LNG: foreign suppliers are failing to deliver

UK wholesale gas prices have been at a premium to the US market; however, this has failed to encourage LNG shippers, which have diverted tankers away from the UK. Cargo needs, capacity planning and concerns about the security of supply should be raised, given that market fundamentals are not at work. A supply failure, albeit temporary, must be corrected for the market to function efficiently.

UK joins non-binding EU agreement to support nuclear

The UK and 11 other EU countries have signaled their support for nuclear generation. Datamonitor expects benefits from such "soft" agreements to be long-term and to include easier access to funding and R&D sharing.
