New York Poised to Close Last Coal-fire Power Plant

LCG, December 4, 2019--The last operating coal-fired power plant in New York is moving toward closure shortly. Last month, Somerset Operating Company, a subsidiary of Riesling Power LLC, submitted a request to the New York State Public Service Commission (NYSPSC) to waive the state's required, 180-day notice to close the Somerset Station, allowing the facility to be retired on February 15, 2020. Closure is contingent on approvals by both NYSPSC and the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO), which will evaluate if it will cause an adverse effect on grid reliability.

Enron Negotiating to Sell Korean Gas Interests

LCG, Nov. 6, 2001--Enron Corp., already on the ropes in the U.S. and India, is in negotiations with one or more interested parties to sell its 50 percent interest in SK-Enron, a gas distribution joint venture with SK Corp. of South Korea.

Korea Oil News said companies with which Enron is talking include El Paso Corp., BP-Amoco and Exxon Mobil. The publication said Enron planned on receiving letters of intent from interested parties by the end of this month and to complete the sale either this year or early next year.

Enron and SK formed the joint venture in 1999, each company contributing 25 billion won ($19.44 million U.S.) for a total of 50 billion won paid-in capital.

Y. H. Moon, an official of SK-Enron, told Reuters news agency "It is true that Enron is in talks to sell the stake in the joint venture, but we cannot comment where the sale talks are now and how they would proceed," and gave no other details.
