ONGC Reportedly In Talks To Acquire Chesapeake

Natural gas prices in Asia are currently three to four times higher than those in the US. Integration of US and Asian natural gas markets, particularly Indian market could mean huge cost savings for Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. (BSE:500312) (ONGC). While currently some regulatory issues exist, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Barack Obama will meet in New Delhi on January 25 to discuss the possible options, with both being keen on solving the issues. Outcome of the talks could be the start of the biggest US-Asia gas collaboration in decades. Taking into account the favorable political and market conditions for cash rich national Exploration and Production companies, India's Oil and Natural Gas Corporation could be already in talks with a North-American gas and oil company, with Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK) is believed to be the target, according to industry experts. Chesapeake Energy is a strong strategic target, given its recent sales and great balance sheet and diversification through two commodities, a good strategy in the given energy environment. The new management has improved the situation a lot – cut administrative expenses and capital spending, as well as de-leveraged through asset sales. Combined with improved cash flow and shale positioning, it’s a very attractive option for ONGC.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation Announces Update on a Shareholder Lawsuit
