    Germany's BASF sees higher 2019 revenues and earnings, lifting shares

    BASF expects revenues and earnings to rise this year as recent acquisitions help it cope with a slowing global economy and trade tensions, the German company said on Tuesday, sending its shares five percent higher. Fourth-quarter operating profit plunged almost 60 percent to 630 million euros (£543 million) as the firm's basic chemicals business was hit by a slump in prices for isocyanate - used in making polyurethane polymers and foams - and supply disruptions. Brudermueller is under pressure from investors to show a decline in the company's basic chemicals business, which makes materials for products such as heat insulation foams and coatings, can be offset by growth in more advanced products such as pesticides, catalysts and engineering plastics.

    Germany's BASF fourth-quarter EBIT slumps on lower earnings from basic petrochemical unit

    German chemicals group BASF reported a nearly 60 percent drop in fourth-quarter operating profit on Tuesday, due to a sharp decline in earnings at its basic petrochemical-making unit. Fourth-quarter group earnings before interest and tax plunged 59 percent to 630 million euros ($715.37 million), above the average analyst estimate of 598 million euros in a Reuters poll. Chief Executive Martin Brudermueller is under pressure from analysts and investors to show that a decline at the basic chemicals unit, which makes materials that go into products such as heat insulation foams or coatings, can be offset by gains from more advanced products such as pesticides, catalysts or engineering plastics.

    Belgium tax break for BP, others, upheld by EU court

    LUXEMBOURG/BRUSSELS, Feb 14 (Reuters) - BP, BASF and more than 30 other multinationals stand to benefit after EU judges overturned an order demanding Belgium revoke a tax break. The European Commission failed to prove that the Belgian tax break constituted aid, said the ruling by the General Court, the lower branch of the Court of Justice in Luxembourg. "The Commission wrongly considered that the Belgian system relating to the excess profit of multinational companies constituted an aid scheme," it said.

    Norway awards record 83 exploration licenses in mature areas

    Norway awarded a record 83 blocks to explore for petroleum resources in mature areas of the Norwegian continental shelf, in a sign of continuing interest from oil companies in the country's oil sector, the energy ministry said on Tuesday. A lack of large discoveries on the shelf has prompted concerns that Norway's top industry, which employs about 170,000 people directly and indirectly, could fall into decline. The government hopes that offering more licenses could trigger more activity.
