Gasunie: splitting up as competition hots up

As part of the transition towards a fully competitive gas market in the Netherlands, Gasunie is to split into two separate trading companies run by Exxon and Shell, and a government-owned network operator.

Gas procurement: a retail led path

The Anglo-Dutch gas pipeline will be a key route for continental gas imported into the UK. Centrica [CNA] is to take 8bcm per year from Gasunie through the BBL, in addition to agreeing a recent 1bcm fixed price contract with Statoil [STL.OL]. Fixed price contracts are particularly appealing right now as a tool to guard against future price volatility and protect margins.

Fortis: no Swiss or Brits please

Fortis' CEO has said that the firm will not merge with UK or Swiss candidates. A merger between equals remains one of the core parts of the Belgo-Dutch bancassurer's strategy, but Mr Van Rossum prefers candidates from the eurozone. A German or French player would fit better with his business model.

Fortis: cautious optimism

Fortis [FOR] has spun off Assurant, its US-based insurance arm, leaving it to focus on its core Benelux markets and expansion in Europe and Asia through partnerships and minority holdings.
