Shell said today that it had completed the sale of its 15% shareholding in Malaysia LNG Tiga (MLNG Tiga) for $750 million.
The Anglo-Dutch energy giant offloaded the stake to the Sarawak State Financial Secretary (SFS), which now has a 25% interest in MLNG Tiga overall.
The other shareholders of MLNG Tiga are Petronas, with 60% equity, Nippon Oil Finance, with 10%, and Mitsubishi Corporation, with 5%.
Shell said the sale was part of its $30 billion divestment programme, aimed at balancing the books following its acquisition of BG Group.
A Shell spokesman said: “Completion of this sale demonstrates the clear momentum behind Shell’s delivery of its global divestment programme.
“Shell continues to have a strong business in Malaysia and remains committed to the country.”
