Closing of 11% Acquisition in ISAB
LUKOIL INCREASES TO 60 % ITS STAKE IN JOINT VENTURE TO OPERATE ISAB REFINING COMPLEX
LUKOIL has completed the acquisition of 11% in the joint venture to operate the ISAB refining complex located in Priolo (Sicily).
Thus, LUKOIL's stake in the joint venture has gone up from 49% to 60%.
The transaction amount was EUR 205 million, excluding inventory.
As reported earlier, in January of 2011 ERG's Board of Directors resolved to sell an 11% stake in the joint venture to LUKOIL. This is a partial exercise of ERG's option to sell its stake, which accords with the agreement of 2008 to create the joint venture.
