BG Group: microgeneration strategy will prove difficult

BG Group: planned acquisition of Origin Energy has potential problems

UK natural gas producer BG Group has signaled its interest in Australia's Origin Energy through a A$12.9 billion (GBP6.2 billion) takeover offer.

It may have taken two years of negotiations, but BG can now look forward to building a base for itself in the fast growing Italian gas market.
