ziare.com: KazMunaiGaz a platit doar 10% din datoria de la Petromidia

Rompetrol Rafinare, detinuta de KazMunaiGaz, a platit statului mai putin de 10% din imprumutul de 570 de milioane de euro care ajunge la scadenta la sfarsitul lunii septembrie. Pentru restul sumei, statul ar urma sa primeasca actiuni la companie.

Problema obligatiunilor de la Rompetrol Rafinare ar putea genera cel mai mare proces din istoria corporatista a Romaniei. Principala problema este acum interpretarea ordonantei prin care datoriile istorice ale Petromidia au fost transformate in obligatiuni in favoarea statului, scrie Ziarul Financiar.

Rompetrol a apelat pentru consultanta juridica la cele mai mari case de avocatura – Tuca Zbarcea, Nestor (NNDKP) si Musat.

La inceputul anului, Guvernul era convins ca va recupera suma de 570 de milioane de euro de la Rompetrol, insa acest lucru a devenit incert intre timp. Dinu Patriciu spune ca problema datoriilor este acum a kazahilor pentru ca el si-a vandut actiunile grupului Rompetrol.

money.ro: Videanu: Pe lângă Electra şi Hidroenergetica, avem nevoie şi de sectorul privat în energie

Avem nevoie de sectorul privat pe piaţa producţiei de energie, pentru că ar funcţiona ca un element de control, susţine ministrul Economiei, Adriean Videanu.  Videanu a dat asigurări că Guvernul este pregătit cu un pachet legislativ, astfel încât înfiinţarea companiilor naţionale din sectorul energetic, Electra şi Hidroenergetica să nu treneze, iar la începutul lui 2011 să funcţioneze deja ca entităţi juridice.

Primul obiectiv, susţine ministrul Economiei, este de a face un proces de restructurare în sectorul energetic pe baza ordinului de merit, adică în funcţie de competitivitatea fiecărui producător de energie. Cele două companii nu sunt însă de ajuns şi trebuie ca pe piaţă se fie loc şi pentru producătorii din sectorul privat.

“Eu cred cu tărie că pe lângă cele două companii avem nevoie de sectorul privat în zona producţiei deenergie. Avem nevoie de apariţia sectorului privat ca un element de control al competiţiei pe piaţa producţiei de energie”, a spus Videanu.

Rompetrol Rafinare a rascumparat pe 9 august obligatiuni in valoare de 54 milioane de euro de la statul roman printr-un credit de la actionarul majoritar, iar pana la finele lunii septembrie, compania ar trebui sa achite restul de 516 milioane de euro, la care se mai adauga dobanzile aferente ultimului an, de circa 17 milioane.

Kazahii sustin insa ca nu dispun de fondurile necesare pentru achitarea intregii datorii, in conditiile in care pierderile companiei au crescut de la an la an. Astfel, statul ar putea redeveni actionar la Petromidia, la peste 10 ani de la privatizare.

Rompetrol Rafinare a inregistrat pierderi de peste 200 de milioane de euro in primul semestru, iar valoarea capitalurilor proprii ale companiei a scazut la 72 milioane de euro.

money.ro: Videanu n-ar vinde niciodată Transelectrica

Ministru Economiei, Adriean Videanu, a afirmat joi, la un seminar pe teme energetice, că este adeptul menţinerii monopolului de stat în transportul energiei electrice, pentru că doar statul poate asigura accesul nediscriminatoriu la energie al tuturor companiilor din piaţă.

“Eu sunt deptul menţinerii monopolului statului în transportul energiei pentru a asigura accesul nediscriminatoriu pentru toţi participanţii la piaţă. Numai statul poate face investiţii rapide în ranforsarea sistemului energetic şi în domeniul interconexiunilor cu ţările vecine”, a declarat Videanu în cadrul unui seminar organizat de publicaţia “Focus Energetic”.

Transelectrica este Operatorul de Transport şi de Sistem din România, care gestionează, operează, întreţine, modernizează şi dezvoltă reţeaua de transport care cuprinde 78 staţii electrice de transformare, cu o capacitate de circa 35.000 MVA, şi 9.028 km de linii electrice aeriene de 110/220 kV, 400 kV şi 750 kV, aflate în gestiunea a opt sucursale de transport. Operatorul naţional al reţelei de transport a energiei electrice a înregistrat în primul semestru al acestui an o pierdere de peste 58 de milioane de lei după ce, în perioada echivalentă a anului trecut, înregistrase un profit net de 8,9 milioane de lei. Veniturile totale înregistrate de Transelectrica au fost doar cu puţin mai mari decât în primele şase luni ale anului trecut (1,277 miliarde de lei, faţă de 1,275 miliarde), dar cheltuielile au crescut mult mai mult: de la 1,255 miliarde anul trecut la 1,335 în acest an. mai mult

Bursa: “Hidroelectrica” licitează investiţii de 1,5 miliarde euro

Compania “Hidroelectrica” va scoate la licitaţie, în septembrie, şase proiecte de parteneriate public-private pentru construcţia de hidrocentrale noi.
Mihai David, directorul general al “Hidroelectrica”, a declarat, ieri, într-o conferinţă “Focus Energetic”, că este vorba de două centrale pe râul Olt, 11 pe râul Buzău, 10 centrale pe Mureş, 7 pe Arieş şi încă 15 pe Someş.
Domnul David a mai spus că, în următorii cinci ani, compania vrea să atragă investiţii de trei miliarde de euro în noi capacităţi de producţie: “Mergem în principal pe parteneriate public-private, dar analizăm toate posibilităţile de finanţare, inclusiv credite bancare, pentru investiţii strategice. Piaţa de capital o vom putea folosi după înfiinţarea celor două mari companii energetice Hidroenergetica şi Electra. Ne gândim inclusiv la emisiuni de obligaţiuni”.
Cota “Hidroelectrica” în cele şase parteneriate va diferi în funcţie de aportul adus de compania de stat. Mihai David a explicat: “La unele proiecte putem participa cu activele existente, respectiv lucrări de amenajare începute şi nefinalizate, la altele nu avem construit nimic. Desigur, ne dorim ca participaţia noastră să fie undeva la 50% în fiecare companie de proiect, dar totul depinde de negocieri”. mai mul

RIA Novosti: Ukraine signs deal on 10% stake in Siberian uranium center

Ukraine has signed an agreement with Russia on the purchase of a 10% stake in an international uranium enrichment center in Siberia, Ukraine’s Nuclear Fuel state-controlled concern said on Thursday.

The purchase will be finalized in October after Ukraine pays for the stake.

In May 2007, Russia and Kazakhstan signed an agreement on the establishment of a uranium enrichment center in Angarsk, 120 km from Lake Baikal, to enable countries, including Iran, to develop civilian nuclear technology without having to conduct their own enrichment activities.

The Russian Federal Atomic Energy Agency Rosatom offered Ukraine a stake in Angarsk in September 2007.

The center is due to go into operation in 2013.

Novinite: Bulgaria’s Energy Watchdog: Gas Price Might Go Down

The Head of the Bulgarian State Commission for Energy and Water Regulation (DKEVR),Angel Semerdzhiev, stated there is a possibility to lower gas prices in the country during the third and fourth quarter of 2010.

Semerdzhiev spoke Thursday in an interview for the Bulgarian National Television, BNT, on the heels of an announcement of the gas supplier Bulgargaz that prices will have to go up 3% in October, contradicting DKEVR’s earlier forecasts that in the beginning of the cold season prices will go down as much as 10% to 15%.

The DKEVR Head said the exact price request from Bulgargaz will be known around September 10 while gas prices for the winter season (fourth quarter) are in the very initial stage of forming.

Regarding power outages that have been pestering the Bulgarian Black Sea coast since the end of July, leaving thousands of holidaymakers stranded without electric power, air conditioning and hot water, Semerdzhiev pointed out failures do happen and they always create inconveniences. According to him, the huge construction on the southern BulgarianBlack Sea coast is the reason for the blackouts, because the Austrian-owned power utilityEVN had been unable to undertake adequate measures to respond to the increased demand.

When asked if customers will be compensated for losses accrued over the power outages, the DKEVR Head said all are EVN clients, and the National Electric Company (NEK), which owns the network, is not directly responsible.

NoviniteRosatom: Ball on Belene NPP Is in Bulgaria’s Court

Russia has provided the Bulgarian side with all data and documentation for the go-ahead of the project to build a second Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) in the Danube town of Belene, the Russian news agency Interfax reports Thursday.

Interfax cites the CEO of the Russian State-owned Nuclear Energy Corporation Rosatom,Sergey Kirienko, telling Prime Minister Vladimir Putin that the Bulgarian cabinet has all the information they need and the ball is in their court now to make a decision on the project’s future.

Kirienko further announced the establishment of a joint task force to examine all unresolved issues regarding investments in the Belene NPP.

“In concordance with the proposal you personally approved, we gave the Bulgarian side everything they might need to make a final decision,” Kirienko is quoted saying, addingRosatom is constantly increasing its presence abroad.

According to the CEO, a pilot company had been set in Turkey under previous agreements and the final details will be coordinated with the Turkish side by the end of August. Kirienko further told Putin the Russian side is now in the process of registering the said company in Turkey.

In the spring, the Russian government, whose company Atomstroyexport was supposed to construct the Belene plant, offered Bulgaria a state loan of EUR 2 B in order to keep the construction going until Bulgaria finds an investor. Prime Minister, Boyko Borisov, however, has made it clear on several occasions that Bulgaria will not construct the new plant unless it finds a strategic investor from Western Europe. The July report of Borisov’s ruling, center-right Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria (GERB) party for the first year of their term listed among the cabinet’s top priorities finding a strategic investor for the BeleneNPP.

Novinite: Bulgarian Authorities, Utilities to Mull Black Sea Electricity Blackout

Bulgaria’s finance minister Simeon DjankovBurgas region governor Konstantin Grebenarov and representatives of the EVN and NEK power utilities are going to discuss Friday the recent power blackouts that left a number of towns and thousands of tourists in the dark.

According to information from Burgas24.bg, authorities and utilities will talk about the causes and possible remedies of the grave accidents this Monday and some days ago that stopped the electricity supply of towns around Burgas, many of which are active Black Sea resorts.

There has been controversy between NEK (National Electric Company), which owns the network, and EVN, which is the power distributor, as who exactly is responsible for the blackouts.

In the meanwhile, it was speculated that towns in the region might be subjected to some form of electricity restrictions.

energia.gr: Bulgaria to Approach Russia for More Tangible Cut of Gas Price

Bulgarian Deputy Economy, Energy and Tourism Minister Marii Kossev told journalists on Wednesday that Bulgaria will be seeking additional talks with Russia about a “genuine and more tangible” reduction of the price of natural gas.

He recalled that an official reply from Russia to the new proposals for the price of natural gas is expected by mid-August. The same applies to the Belene N-Plant project, because Russia is supposed to come up with a specific financial proposal. “In any case, we will ask the Russian side when we can possibly receive new proposals for the price of natural gas. Even if this does not happen next week, this question will be asked and an answer will be sought at all levels,” the Deputy Minister added.

“Natural gas would be 21 leva more expensive without the talks with Russia in July, because the discounts were limited to a particular portion of the amounts of gas,” Kossev said. Asked for comment on Bulgargaz’s estimates, made public on Tuesday, that natural gas prices should rise by 3 per cent, the Deputy Minister said that these estimates are being verified.
