Energean, a benchmark E&P in the Mediterranean basin, is set to change its status with the start-up of the Karish gas field in Israel, whose production is destined for the dynamic domestic market. Future production is secured through LNG contracts, providing good visibility on future cash flows (post-start-up EBITDAX of $ 900m in 2022 vs $ 36m in 2019). In addition, the acquisition of Edison's assets will enable Energean to increase its production tenfold to around 44.5-51.5 kboe/d. W...
Energean, une E&P de référence sur le bassin méditerranéen, va opérer un changement de statut avec le démarrage du champ gazier israélien Karish, dont la production est destinée au dynamique marché domestique.

Par ailleurs, la reprise des actifs d’Edison va permettre à Energean de multiplier par 10 sa production d...

There were no particular announcements other than the control of costs was good (crucial in the current context) and debt under control.

The general meeting is convened to approve a sale of Direct Energy, Centricans North American energy supply, services and trading business, to NRG Energy for $3.625 billion in cash (equivalent to approximately £2.85 billion) on a debt free, cash free basis. We agree that the proposed cash offer is reasonable considering the current market circumstances and the group’s needs in urgent action in light of the Covid-19 impact on earnings and unbearable indebtedness. The disposal of Direct Energy will simplify the group’s structure and will allow focusing on a new strategy enabling the transition t...
Le rapport spécial des commissaires aux comptes ne comporte aucune convention, ni nouvelle, ni ancienne. L'absence de conventions au rapport spécial est, sauf opéra on non signalée aux commissaires aux comptes, le signe d'une bonne autonomie du projet de l'entreprise et d'une meilleure intégrité économique du groupe, surtout pour un groupe familial (résolution 4). Proxinvest estime que le taux d'indépendance du Conseil est très insuﬃsant (23%). Notons toutefois qu'André Delion, membre libre de conﬂits d'intérêts potentiels, assure désormais la présidence du Conseil depuis le 22 août 2019.Quan...
