Energy companies are looking into new technologies as a response to the complaints of hydrawulic fracking, reports the Wall Street Journal. Statoil (STO), for example, began rolling out a mobile natural-gas compressor system developed by General Electric (GE) and Ferus Natural Gas. National Oilwell (NOV) signed an agreement for a desalination system that can purify wastewater and Halliburton (HAL) provides a fracking fluid that is still effective when it contains higher concentrations of dissolved solids than typical fracking fluids.

08:05 EDTGENRG Yield to acquire GE EFS' 25% interest in Desert Sunlight Solar Farm
NRG Yield, Inc. (NYLD), through its subsidiary NRG Yield Operating LLC, has entered into an agreement with GE Unit (GE) GE Energy Financial Services to acquire its 25% interest in the Desert Sunlight Solar Farm in Riverside, CA for $285M subject to customary working capital adjustments, plus the assumption of $287.4M of non-recourse project level debt. The acquisition, which provides NRG Yield with a total ownership of 137.5 megawatts of operating solar capacity, will place NRG Yield into a partnership with subsidiaries of NextEra Energy (NEE) and Sumitomo Financial (SMFG), who are the 50% and 25% owners of Desert Sunlight, respectively. The transaction is expected to increase both the annual run-rate EBITDA by approximately $45M and cash available for distribution by approximately $22M by 2016. NRG Yield expects to close the transaction by June 30, 2015. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approvals by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and notice of the acquisition to the California Public Utilities Commission. With this acquisition, NRG Yield now owns nearly 600 megawatts of solar generation. NRG Yield is supported by its parent, NRG Energy (NRG), which owns and operates approximately 1.2 gigawatts of solar generation, thus implying a combined solar portfolio of 1.8 gigawatts.

05:58 EDTSTOStatoil says to cut 1,100-1,500 permanent employees by end of 2016
The effort to standardize, simplify and increase efficiency across Statoil enters the next phase. The potential workforce reduction is estimated at 1,100–1,500 permanent employees by end 2016. In addition Statoil will further reduce the number of consultants by around 525. The estimate for workforce reductions reflects the STEP efficiency potential and further corporate improvements over the coming 18 months. "We regret the need for further reductions, but the improvements are necessary to strengthen Statoil’s competitiveness and secure our future value creation," says Anders Opedal, EVP and COO in Statoil. The improvement programme and strict capital expenditure prioritization was initiated in 2013, addressing the industry wide cost and competitiveness challenge, well ahead of the current downturn. Since end 2013 the workforce has been reduced by 1,340 permanent employees and 995 external consultants. The reductions are achieved through more limited use of consultants, attrition, internal deployment into new positions, severance packages and early retirement. Recruitment has been very limited, but the company has upheld its focus on recruiting apprentices and graduates. The implementation of the improvement agenda continues in coming weeks and months. The changes and actions from STEP have been decided after consultation with the employees’ representatives, and these will now be handed over to the Business Areas for implementation. Statoil has committed to delivering $1.7B in annual savings from the improvement program in 2016, and beyond.
