New position in the United Kingdom
On the 18th October DONG Energy and Shell UK signed a Sales and Purchase Agreement to acquire Shell Gas Direct. EU clearance has now been granted by the commission and the acquisition is expected to be completed in the coming months. When completed the transaction will underline our commitment to the UK and will provide DONG Energy Sales with a unique opportunity to enter the natural gas sales market.
It is our intention to gain the strategic platform needed to become an integrated energy company in the UK, by tying together our gas and power assets with a retail downstream business. Our total investment including all currently planned projects from 2005 in the UK will amount to around 3.7 billion GBP.
