Centrica: doubling up in Canada

The Enbridge deal doubles Centrica's Canadian customer base, bringing the company towards its target of ten million North American customers by the end of 2003. The timescale may look tight, but Centrica stands a good chance of achieving it.

British Energy: twelve days and counting

British Energy has 12 days until its GBP650 million loan runs out, and no clear strategy after that. The current plan of a debt-for-equity swap relies on the optimistic notion that creditors still consider BE stock to be worth something.

Centrica: expanding further in Canada

Centrica's march towards its goal of 10 million customers in North America by 2004 continues with the acquisition of Alberta's leading gas and electricity retailer, ATCO. Meanwhile, the refinancing of subsidiary Enbridge Services means more funds for further acquisitions, but the slower than expected pace of deregulation is making organic growth that little bit harder.<BR />

UK energy: nuclear option key to supply diversity

With increasing demand for energy, restricted supply, and Kyoto targets on reducing greenhouse gas emissions to meet, the case for building new nuclear plants, once dismissed as a last resort, is rapidly regaining force.

Gazprom/Petro-Canada: Baltic terminal project hints at global LNG potential

Russian gas giant Gazprom and Canadian major Petro-Canada are to proceed with construction of an LNG terminal on the Baltic Sea. Based on existing demand and infrastructure, the gas could be sold both on the North American as well as European markets. This brings arbitrage opportunities on top of long-term supply for the Canadian market, and marks a further step towards a truly global LNG market.
