DUET To Not To Bid For Queensland Gas Pipeline Of BG Group

As infrastructure investors pore over the AUD 3 billion Queensland gas pipeline on offer from BG Group plc (LSE:BG.), DUET Group (ASX:DUE) for one has decided not to lodge an indicative bid by the August 28, 2014, reported Australian Financial Review. Duet and other listed players such as Spark Infrastructure Group (ASX:SKI) are expected to find it hard to compete against some unlisted rivals, while the structuring of the sale as a passive investment reduces its attractiveness for pipeline operators such as DUET and APA Group (ASX:APA). Even so the auction should be hotly contested, with many parties taking a very close look, Borealis Infrastructure Trust, Cheung Kong (Holdings) Limited (SEHK:1) and Hastings Funds Management Limited among them, plus potentially APA's unlisted Energy Infrastructure Investments Pty Limited.
