Brazilian oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA said French utility company Engie SA and Canadian pension giant Caisse de depot et placement du Quebec presented the best offer for a 90% stake in gas-pipeline unit Transportadora Associada de Gas SA.
The roughly $8.6 billion offer, subject to approval by Petrobras governance and competitive defense bodies, includes the payment by the buyer of $800 million in debt with Brazilian state lender BNDES on the closing date, according to Petrobras.
State-owned Petrobras launched TAG's auction in 2017, attracting interest from Blackstone Group LP, EIG Global Energy Partners and Macquarie Group Ltd., all working with large institutional investors. (www.wsj.com/articles/competition-heats-up-for-brazilian-pipeline-business-1520445600)
