Kuwait Petroleum To Acquire Stake In Paradip Refinery From Indian Oil Corporation

Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC) has again approached Indian Oil Corporation Limited (BSE:530965) (IOC) for a stake in INR 297.77 billion Paradip refinery. Sanjiv Singh, Director (Refineries) of Indian Oil Corporation said, "They have again approached. Talks are at very initial level. Things are at very preliminary stage." Another official said, "We had in March stated that KPC is in talks with IOC for an equity stake. Those talks remain at preliminary level. Not much has progressed." IOC is willing to offer no more than 26% stake in Paradip. The second official said, "We are discussing details of their participation, whether they are interested in taking a stake in the refinery or in the petrochemical project or both is what we are discussing now." The official said, "If the equity participation will be subject to the refinery buying all or most of its crude oil requirement from Kuwait then that will be a big no-no from us as we don't want to tie ourself down to just one supplier."
