SPP deal OK: commission

A privatisation commission for the sale of a 49 per cent stake in gas utility SPP on Friday recommended the government accept a bid of $2.7 billion offered by a consortium of Ruhrgas, Gaz de France and Gazprom. Although the consortium had declined the commission’s request that it increase the offer, it has accepted all other demands the government has insisted be in the sale contract.
