Russia breaks wall into U.S. nuclear market
By Simon Shuster, Reuters

MOSCOW — Russia signed a landmark deal to supply nuclear fuel directly to U.S. companies on Tuesday, setting itself up to control 20 percent of the U.S. uranium market and extending its global reach in the nuclear sector.
At a ceremony in the Russian capital, U.S. electricity firms PG&E, Ameren Corp and Luminant signed deals to get more than $1 billion in uranium supplies from Russia’s state nuclear fuel exporter Tenex between 2014 and 2020.

Bruce Hamilton, the president of Fuelco, the intermediary set up by the three U.S. companies for the deal with Russia, said Tuesday’s agreements open the door for Russia to directly take 20 percent of the U.S. uranium market between 2014 and 2020.
The Russians do it all. They mine it, they convert it and they enrich it, Hamilton told Reuters after the deals were signed. And after 2020, it’s just wide open (for Russia).
The Russian fuel would be used initially to provide power to 5 million U.S. homes in California, Texas and Missouri, he added.

Tuesday’s deals extended its reach further into the United States, where Russia is now discussing access to nuclear infrastructure, such as uranium storage facilities, Kiriyenko said.
The directors of the U.S. energy companies discussed this with us. For them it would be more convenient if these facilities were located right in the United States. This is a logical step for us, Kiriyenko told reporters.
He added that these facilities would be jointly owned.
U.S. anti-dumping laws were eased last year in a deal between Moscow and Washington to allow direct sales of uranium to other U.S. firms aside from USEC.

NEW YORK — Police combed surveillance footage Tuesday and hunted for additional video that might have captured a small explosion near a Starbucks on Manhattan’s Upper East Side.
The blast bore resemblances to previous small bombings in the city, but investigators so far believe it was isolated.
The explosion early Monday destroyed a sidewalk bench and shattered windows; no one was injured. The coffee shop, near the Guggenheim museum, was open Tuesday morning, although the windows hadn’t been fixed. Traffic was back to normal in the area.
