American hedge fund Third Level has cashed out of FTSE 250-listed Energean after hovering gasoline costs pushed shares near report highs. 

The aggressive funding home – which has grabbed headlines for its activist marketing campaign at Shell – bought its remaining 9.8 per cent stake to different institutional shareholders for £170m.
