Eni sells stakes in pipelines to Fluxys Europe

Eni SPA said it agreed to sell its stakes in German and Swiss pipelines to Fluxys Europe for €850 million as part of a European Union antitrust ruling.

Eni said the sale is part of commitments it made to the European Commission on Sept. 29, 2010, and is subject to its approval. The Italian firms said the sale is expected to be completed by yearend.

Eni last year agreed to sell off three pipelines to settle without a fine an EC probe that concluded it had abused its dominant market position. Had Eni not sold the holdings, it could have faced a penalty of up to 10% of its annual earnings.

Eni sold its holdings in Transitgas for €798 million and its holdings in the Trans Europa Naturgas Pipeline in Germany for €60 million. In June, Eni sold its holding in the Trans Austria Gas pipeline to Italian state lender CDP for €483 million.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
