Gloves come off in Lithuanian unbundling debate

In an attempt to speed up the development of a competitive, well supplied gas market through nationalizing the transmission network, the Lithuanian government has alienated investors. This counterproductive approach to security of supply leaves the task of attracting capital for other projects, notably a replacement to the nuclear power plant at Ignalina, all the more difficult.

Lithuania's government has few options in supply contract dispute

The courses of action open to Lithuania in its gas supply contract dispute with Gazprom appear to be limited. A contract signed in 2004 tied gas import prices to an oil linked indexation formula. Rising oil prices mean that the import price for 2006 will rise by 46% - an unwelcome situation for the government, but one in which it has little, if any, room for maneuver.

Lithuania: moves towards new roadmap for gas industry

Plans to split gas transportation and distribution assets in Lithuania have been endorsed by the country's parliament. Datamonitor believes that the plans, once approved by the president, will help move the Lithuanian gas industry towards unhindered access to the European gas infrastructure, while also changing the configuration of the domestic market.

Lukoil/Yukos: carving up the post-Soviet markets

Russia's second-largest oil company Yukos looks set to step up its investment in the oil processing and transportation infrastructure of the Baltic states, while archrival Lukoil is concentrating on the new St Petersburg oil terminal and the post-Soviet markets further south. The two strategies allow the companies to avoid head-on competition with each other.

Lukoil: automatic for the future

Lithuanian fuel retailer Lukoil Baltija has reportedly decided to transform the majority of its network into automatic sites. This will enable the company to keep its position as Lithuania's market leader while increasing its overall efficiency. The venture is also relatively risk-free and should secure a profitable future for the Lithuanian fuel retailer, if not for its employees.

Lukoil: moving forward in non-fuel sales

Russian fuel retailer Lukoil has announced an eight-year plan to increase its focus on shop sales at its service stations, while its Baltic subsidiary has launched a new loyalty program. Both events serve to demonstrate Lukoil's new customer-centric aspirations, and suggest that we may see these aspirations being fulfilled in a rather innovative way.

Nordic fuel retailers take unmanned voyage east

While unmanned or automated sites have been an integral part of the forecourt retailing landscape in the Nordic markets for decades, in other parts of Europe this concept of automated payment, no shop and slightly more barren forecourts has never quite managed to take off. But a new wave of openings is now occurring, targeting markets further east.

PKN Orlen: braving the Baltics

PKN Orlen has begun outlining its retail intentions for the Baltic region as it moves closer to the official acquisition of Lithuanian refinery Mazeikiu Nafta. While this deal gives PKN access to much-needed upstream assets, its lack of retail presence means it will have a lot of work do to if it intends to grow organically in markets where the likes of Lukoil and Statoil are firmly established.

The gloves are off in central European fuel retail

Rapid network expansion and upstream muscle are the unstoppable forces pushing Lukoil to the fore of fuel retailing in central and eastern Europe (CEE). The firm is the key mover in the region, expanding its site presence by a remarkable 180% over the past three years. But selling petrol is not simply a numbers game: Lukoil is also successfully incorporating a strong shop proposition.
