    Exxon beefs up Mozambique LNG project to cut costs ahead of bank talks

    Exxon Mobil (XOM.N) will expand its Rovuma liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Mozambique by half to cut production costs as the partners prepare to book the plant's supply and formally tap lenders in September, the company told Reuters. The U.S. oil giant took charge of the East African LNG project's onshore operations following a $2.8 billion (2.12 billion pounds)deal with Italy's Eni (ENI.MI) last year, adding to its slate of planned gas projects in Qatar, Papua New Guinea, Russia and the United States. It now aims to build the world's biggest liquefaction units, or trains, outside Qatar, in Mozambique's remote north, shelving former operator Eni's more modest blueprint in pursuit of cost savings to boost returns on investment.

    EDF considering options over its 80 percent stake in UK nuclear plants

    French state-controlled power group EDF (EDF.PA) said on Wednesday it was considering its options regarding Britain's nuclear plants, adding that it wanted to keep a majority stake. The Sunday Times had reported over the weekend that China General Nuclear (CGN) was in early-stage talks with EDF Energy and its partner Centrica (CNA.L) about acquiring a share of up to 49 percent in Britain's fleet of eight power stations. Centrica itself had said in June it planned to sell its 20 percent stake in the UK nuclear power plants by the end of 2020.

    Asian energy giants hedge U.S. LNG buying spree with European deals

    Asian utilities are increasingly striking up European partnerships and hunting for acquisitions to hedge their large multi-billion-dollar purchases of U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) supplies. In the latest example, Japan's JERA, the world's largest buyer of liquefied gas, will absorb the LNG trading desk of France's EDF Trading (EDFT) (EDF.PA) to gain wholesale access to European gas markets and sharpen its trading edge. Such deals, also struck lately by Tokyo Gas and Kogas, give Asian giants a fallback market for U.S. LNG supplies which they may not need, having rushed to commit to big chunks of new liquefaction capacity offered there in the past six years.

    Spirit Energy lifts lower resource estimate for Norway gas field

    Spirit Energy has sharply hiked the lower resource estimate for its Fogelberg gas discovery in the Norwegian Sea after recent appraisal drilling, it said on Friday, and aims to start production from the field in 2022. Updated calculations now show a resource estimate of between 40 million and 90 million barrels of recoverable oil equivalents of gas and condensate, while the previous projection was for 23 million to 94 million barrels. "This drilling has considerably lifted the floor of the resource estimate, thus reducing the risk and yielding a more robust project," Dag Omre, head of Spirit Energy's Norwegian subsidiary, said.

    Engie sees British customer base and profitability growth -UK CEO

    French power producer Engie (Brussels: ENGI.BR - news) , which entered the British retail market last year, will have a 100,000-strong customer base in the country by the end of 2018, a year that will also be more profitable, its UK chief told Reuters. This year's exceptionally cold winter that caused power prices to reach records in Britain benefited many energy firms as electricity and fossil fuel revenues grew. As a result, Engie (LSE: 0LD0.L - news) grew its business in Britain and the company expects 2018 profit to exceed that of 2017 in the energy services business, its chief executive for UK and Ireland Wilfrid Petrie told Reuters on Tuesday.

    E.ON will raise prices for British customers taking both gas and electricity by 4.8 percent from Aug. 16, the German utility said on Tuesday, the last of the "big six" energy suppliers to increase its tariffs. The move follows similar increases announced this year by the other five big suppliers in the country, and comes as regulator Ofgem is working to set a cap on standard prices by the end of the year. Utilities have denied overcharging, but the Competition and Markets Authority found they had overcharged some British households a total of 1.4 billion pounds a year on average from 2012 to 2015, prompting the government to act.

    LONDON/TOKYO (Reuters) - Britain's Centrica and Japan's Tokyo Gas aim to buy liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Anadarko Petroleum's $20 billion (£15 billion) project in Mozambique, the first joint procurement deal designed to defuse risks facing the buyers in their respective markets. The deal also brings Anadarko one step closer to constructing its East African LNG project just as it corrals $14 billion to $15 billion from banks and export credit agencies for the 17,000-acre liquefaction complex in Mozambique's remote north. Lenders require Anadarko to fix at least 8.1 million tonnes (mt) of the project's 12.88 mt total annual output in long-term sales deals to guarantee project revenues.
