  • Wed Aug 23 16:08:00 CDT 2000 -- Texas electricity retailers to file in September
    Texas consumers will have 15-20 choices among electricity providers when competition begins in 2002, if the retail market shapes up as legislators and regulators expect.

    Word that BP PLC has stamped its Helios on plans to inject $900 million in capital expenditures (capex) into the UK North Sea this year-and the same again in 2001-confounded the old newspaperman's adage. Good news was news nonetheless, especially for Offshore Europe. Coming from a supermajor of the first order, the announcement looked to be one of the stoutest olive branches offered in some time to the beleaguered oil and gas province.

    The rise in oil and natural gas prices that hoisted jack up rig demand in the second quarter also drove revenues higher for Houston-based drilling contractor Global Marine Inc.
