DCC/Centrica: LPG sale leaves both sides happy

Building on its acquisition of Alta Gas last year, DCC now has 21% of the market.

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.

European forecourts: exploiting the 'off home' trade

The Irish licensing board recently approved Esso's fourteenth off-license enabling it to add alcohol to its non-fuel offering on the forecourt. With an increase in at-home alcohol consumption in Ireland, as in much of Europe, stocking this product category looks certain to pay off for Esso. Other fuel players already in on the act should look to make further investment in the area.

Shell: Irish forecourt exit reflects wider European exodus

Intensifying competition in the Irish fuel retailing market has seemingly prompted Shell to announce its departure from the country, hot on the heels of its exit from several other European markets. With Shell apparently set to focus its future downstream operation on emerging Asian markets, a trend could yet emerge whereby the oil majors quit Europe's forecourts altogether.

Irish energy: retail competition depends on wholesale opening

The Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) argues that the Irish market is too small to cater for new entrants' needs. This stems from insufficient independent power production (IPP) and a lack of capacity created through virtual-IPP auctions. As Ireland needs a competitive wholesale environment to stimulate retail competition, ESRI has identified the right problem.
