Petronas raises Progress Energy offer after rival bid

Reuters -- Progress Energy Resources Corp (PRQ.TO) said Malaysia's state oil company Petronas PETR.UL has agreed to raise its offer to buy the Canadian natural gas producer by 8 percent after Progress received an unsolicited proposal from a third party.

Petronas, which in June launched a C$20.45 per share offer for Progress, will now pay C$22.00 for each share, or C$5.17 billion ($5.12 billion) in total.

Progress did not name the third party that made the unsolicited offer, but said its board has approved Petronas's latest offer.

The Canadian company, known for its reserves in British Columbia's Montney tight gas region as well as Alberta's Deep Basin, already has a joint venture with Petronas.

A bidding war with a phantom third party? Nice negotiating move by Progress if it works. A mystery buyer wants to buy my car for $90,000. Any one want to offer me 8 percent more?

Malaysia buying Canadian natural gas? Sell that natural gas to the highest bidder, somebody will buy it!
The US has lots of oil and natural gas too! We need our natural gas for use in this country, not exported to the world market for higher prices and profits!
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, Produce and ‘Drive’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money. Consider using other forms of less expensive transportation to lower your cost.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

You have to ask yourself why the Canadian's are willing to sell their natural resources to anyone?
