Industry Briefs

Tenaska Marketing Ventures/Tenaska Marketing Canada/Tenaska Gas Storage (collectively TMV) has renewed a $1 billion committed credit facility for a four-year term maturing in July 2014. The facility, first established in 2006, will be used to finance TMV’s natural gas inventory transactions and as liquidity support for TMV’s operations. TMV is the natural gas marketing affiliate of Tenaska, which recently was ranked eighth in NGI’s North American natural gas quarterly trading survey (see Daily GPI, June 10). Tenaska regained control of TMV in January 2009 after completing a repurchase from affiliates of American International Group Inc., which at the time owned a half stake in the venture (see Daily GPI, Jan. 9, 2009). BNP Paribas and Societe Generale were co-lead arrangers of the credit facility renewal; the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd., Rabobank Nederland, Natixis and Credit Agricole CIB were co-documentation agents. A total of 20 lenders participated in the facility.
