The assets include Chevron’s interests in its manufacturing, retail and industrial supply business in South Africa and Botswana, Glencore said in a statement.
“Glencore believes that the assets provide an attractive downstream opportunity for its oil business,” it said.
The deal, which will include Glencore retaining Chevron’s local management team and workforce, will be funded using existing cash resources and is expected to close in mid-2018.
“Glencore intends to manage its overall oil asset portfolio to ensure that, including this transaction, net additional capital investment is limited to less than US$500m over the next 12 months,” it said. Reuters
