(Bloomberg) Electricite de France SA’s trading unit is looking at a “long list” of natural gas production assets in the U.S. as prices rebound from a 10-year low.

Chesapeake Energy Corp. (CHK), the second-largest U.S. gas producer, plans to sell $14 billion of assets after prices for the fuel dropped to a 10-year low and it lost a third of its market value this year.

There are companies that believe their assets are undervalued and are reluctant to sell, Lewis said.

EDF Trading is also trying to buy into U.S. LNG export terminals, of which just one has been approved by the government so far.
