Shell On Brink Of Announcing Sale Of Four Onshore Oil Blocks In Nigeria

Royal Dutch Shell plc has moved forward for the sale of four onshore oil blocks in Nigeria. Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd. (SPDC) has put pen to paper on two blocks, while the buyers are on the verge of proving that they have the funding, industry sources with knowledge of the deals said. That leaves government approval as the only hurdle to clear before SPDC – a partnership between Shell, Total SA (ENXTPA:FP), Eni SpA (BIT:ENI) and the government– can formally announce the deals. Sales and purchase agreements on two more blocks are ‘imminent’, said one source. The asset sale is valued at £2 billion. An SPDC spokesman said: “In the event of a successful completion of the sales process we shall make a market announcement”
