PETROBRAS SELLS $1.4 BLN

PETROBRAS SELLS $1.4 BLN

Brazilian state-run oil firm Petróleo Brasileiro SA said late Tuesday that it has sold stakes in its Argentina and Chile subsidiaries, some of the first positive signs that the company's aggressive effort to shed assets is gaining traction.

Petrobras said that it sold a 67% stake in its Petrobras Argentina subsidiary to Pampa Energía, an Argentinean energy firm, for $892 million. Petrobras had previously disclosed that it was in negotiations with Pampa Energia.

Petrobras says it also sold its Petrobras Chile subsidiary to Southern Cross Group, an Argentina-based private-equity firm, for $490 million.

Petrobras still has a long way to go to meet its asset sale targets, get out from underneath the lingering affects of a massive corruption scandal, and pay down its debt burden, the largest in the global oil industry.

The sales announced Tuesday are part of a $15.1 billion divestment plan that Petrobras announced in the middle of last year. Company executives have said they are confident they can hit that target by the end of 2016, but so far the company has struggled to sell assets as the oil industry at large dealt with low oil prices.

Petrobras's gross debt swelled to BRL799.25 billion at the end of 2015, 10% more than a year earlier.

While the company looks to shed assets, it has also significantly cut back on its investment program. Petrobras said earlier this year that it will invest $98.4 billion in the 2015-19 period, down from a June 2015 projection of $130.3 billion. The company reduced its targets for oil production in Brazil by 40,000 barrels a day in 2016 and 100,000 barrels a day in 2020.
