Only Subscribers can read the full Article

Switzerland-based commodities trader Gunvor and Pakistan LNG said they have settled a dispute related to LNG supply. The parties were engaged in arbitration over competing contractual claims regarding LNG deliveries, which had come before The London Court of International Arbitration.

Tepco is seeking approval to load nuclear fuel into one of the reactors at the 8.2 GW Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant — the world's largest nuclear facility — potentially pushing it one step closer to restart. The power plant has been offline since 2012 following the accident at the Fukushima plant which was also owned by Tepco. 

While National Grid's CEO outlined the idea of a "super supergrid", elsewhere, a BP exec hit back at CeraWeek sentiments referring to the energy transition as a “fantasy”. According to BP's senior vice president Giorgia Carchitto, BP believes in net zero. "Net zero by 2050 is still part of our target,” Carchitto said.
