Japan's Mitsui To Sell Part Of Marcellus Assets Stake For $207M

Reuters

TOKYO, Dec 22 (Reuters) - Japanese trading house Mitsui & Co said on Thursday it has agreed to sell a part of its stake in the Marcellus shale gas project in the United States to Alta Resources Development for $207 million.

The move comes as part of Mitsui's efforts to improve its energy and mineral resources portfolio and the deal will help it focus its future investments into more productive areas where it will retain its interests, Mitsui said in a statement.

The stake it plans to sell accounts for about 20 percent of its total interest in the Marcellus shale gas project by output, the company said. Mitsui now has a stake equal to a daily gas production of about 300 million cubic feet.
