Saudi Aramco Considers $10 Billion Pipeline Stake Sale

Recommended Posts

Fire Sale, coming soon to autocratic oil regimes.  Gotta pay those 15,000 or so super important and hugely productive princes to keep them from revolting.

Hey MbS, how's that Aramco IPO working out for ya?  Rolling in cash now?

Saudi Aramco Considers $10 Billion Pipeline Stake Sale

(Bloomberg) -- Saudi Aramco, the world’s largest oil producer, has hired advisers to review a potential multi-billion dollar stake sale in its pipeline business, people with knowledge of the matter said.

The energy giant is working with JPMorgan Chase & Co. as it makes early preparations for the potential deal, according to the people, who asked not to to be identified because the information is private. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. also has a role on the transaction, the people said.

Aramco hasn’t yet started a formal sale process, the people said. It may wait until market turmoil caused by plunging oil prices and the impact of measures to halt the spread of the coronavirus eases before it begins soliciting interest in the asset, they said.

Chairman Yasir Al-Rumayyan is looking for ways to raise money from assets that are not central to the company’s operations. A sale could raise more than $10 billion, people familiar with the matter said last month.

Aramco, JPMorgan and MUFG declined to comment.

The review comes amid a similar move by Abu Dhabi National Oil Co., which is seeking to attract investors to its $15 billion gas pipeline after selling a portion of its oil pipelines for about $4 billion last year.
