  10. 11. <ul><li>In an attempt to achieve additional growth, Enron pursued a diversification strategy. </li></ul><ul><li>By 2001, Enron had become a corporation that both owned and operated gas pipelines, pulp and paper plants, broadband assets, electricity plants, and water plants internationally. The corporation also traded in financial markets for the same types of products and service </li></ul>International Market
  11. 12. <ul><li>Enron is well known for its actions in India. </li></ul><ul><li>Around 1992 India came to the United States to find energy investors to help India with its energy shortage problems. </li></ul><ul><li>In December 1993, Enron inked a 20-year power-purchase contract with the Maharashtra State Electricity Board. </li></ul><ul><li>The contract allowed Enron to construct a massive 2,015 megawatt power plant. </li></ul><ul><li>Construction would be completed in two phases and Enron would form its own power company to help manage the plant, the Dabhol Power Company. </li></ul><ul><li>The power project was the first step in a $20 billion scheme to help rebuild and stabilize India's power grid.  </li></ul>International Market
  12. 13. <ul><li>The plant was to be constructed in two phases. Phase one would burn a fuel called naphtha, a fuel similar to kerosene and gasoline. </li></ul><ul><li>Phase one would produce 740 megawatts and help stabilize the local transmission grid. </li></ul><ul><li>Phase two would burn Liquefied Natural Gas, or LNG.

Today, Dabhol, in which Enron had invested some $900 million, sits silent. </li></ul><ul><li>The plant was taken over by Ratnagiri Gas and Power Private limited in July 2005. </li></ul>International Market
