Chevron: looking to leave the Irish market?

Chevron is believed to be in negotiations with the UK's largest independent fuel retailer, Malthurst Fuels, to sell part of its Texaco branded service station network in Ireland. After reporting a loss in 2008, it is possible that Chevron, along with ExxonMobil, the only other oil major left in the country, could follow Shell and Statoil's decision to exit the Irish market altogether.

Fuel retail: Ireland gears up for first motorway service stations

Several new motorway service stations are expected to open on the Emerald Isle over the next couple of years, and leading petrol retailers such as Statoil [STL.OL], Esso and Texaco would be foolish not to seize this fresh opportunity to capture a larger share of the Irish market for both fuel and non-fuel products.

Fuel retailing: Ireland still waiting for motorway services

The Irish National Roads Authority has stated that there will be no new motorway service stations in Ireland until 2009 at the earliest, partly because of lack of interest. However, this seems somewhat surprising as, if executed correctly, oil companies could profit from running motorway service stations in the country.

Musgrave: continues to improve UK performance

The Musgrave group has grown operating profit by 4.1% to E109.2m and nearly halved its net debt to E96m. Going forward, it plans to continue its growth in the UK by investing in IT, logistics and store environments, making stores more consistent and navigable. This is an indication that it plans to supply more fresh goods, but the group will need a strong logistical system if it is to succeed.
