Petrobras Says It Gets $2.2B From Sale Of Assets In Peru
BRASILIA, Nov 11 (Reuters) - Brazil's state-run oil company Petrobras said on Tuesday it received $2.2 billion from the sale of its Peruvian oil and gas assets to PetroChina, China's top oil and gas firm, and its parent China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC).
The company said in a statement it had to deduct $400,000 from the announced sale price of $2.6 billion for taxes owed.
Petrobras has said its exit from Peru is part of a broader plan aimed at divesting billions in foreign assets to focus on massive offshore deposits in Brazil.
