Chevron Agrees To Sell Netherlands Manufacturing Operations To BP
Texaco Nederland B.V., an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Chevron Corporation, has announced the signing of an agreement to sell its Netherlands manufacturing business and other assets to BP.
These businesses comprise interests in several joint-venture companies operating in the Rotterdam area, including a 31 percent interest in the Netherlands Refining Company’s 400,000 barrel-per-day Nerefco Refinery, a 22.8 percent interest in a crude oil storage facility, various associated proprietary pipelines and a 31 percent interest in the 22.5 megawatt wind farm located onsite at the refinery. BP currently owns the remaining 69 percent interest in the Nerefco Refinery and the adjoining wind farm, but holds no interests in the other operations.
The sale, which is valued at about $900 million plus working capital and hydrocarbon inventory, is expected to be completed during the first quarter of 2007, subject to regulatory approval.
The sales agreement supports the company’s strategic objective to improve shareholder returns by focusing its resources and capital investments on maintaining leading positions in areas where it has market and supply strength.
