Oman oil to sell 10% of its stake in Khazzan field

Oman oil to sell 10%Oman Oil Company is planning to sell 10% of its stake in a key natural gas field in the sultanate amid a review of the energy producer’s options for restructuring its business according to market experts. The natural gas field - Khazzan - is 60% owned by BP Plc with the remaining held by Oman Oil Company. The 10% that Oman Oil is planning to sell could be worth about USD 1bn or more and is drawing interest from Chinese, Middle Eastern and Indian companies. No final decisions have been made, however, and the oil giant may still decide to retain the stake.
Oman Oil Company is working with investment bank Lazard Ltd. on ways to revitalize its operations. Market experts had revealed that the company is weighing measures ranging from a potential initial public offering for its exploration business to fully integrating its refining unit into the parent company, as well as asset disposals.
