The article reports that Barclays Capital Inc. has acquired the bulk of Duke Energy's North American portfolio of derivative contracts. The role of financial institutions in energy trading has increased due to their strong financial standing and energy companies withdrawing from this field. There are plans that Duke Energy will divest its power generation assets in the West and North East during the third quarter of the year 2006. Since the last year Barclays has been trading physical power and gas in North America. The position of Barclays in commodities trading is expected to lag behind other players.
