Reuters

WARSAW, Feb 17 (Reuters) - The Polish government is not working on a potential merger between the state-run oil companies Grupa Lotos and PKN Orlen, Energy Minister Krzysztof Tchorzewski said on Friday.

Shares Lotos and PKN rose on Thursday after a senior government official Henryk Kowalczyk flagged an idea of a merger in a future.

"We haven't taken any actions within the government, but various people express their opinions," Tchorzewski told reporters when asked about Lotos-PKN merger.
