Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras) says it has completed negotiations with Pampa Energia on the main terms and conditions of the sale of its stake in Petrobras Argentina (PESA), owned by Petrobras Participaciones S.L. (PPSL).

Pampa Energía, a public traded company, is an integrated energy company in Argentina operating in the oil and gas sector as well as in the generation transmission and distribution of electric energy sector. The company headed by Marcelo Mindlin, the owner of Edenor - Argentina's largest distributor of electricity.

The transaction negotiated includes the sale of a 67.19 percent stake in PESA, a 33.6 percent retention by Petrobras of the Rio Neuquen concession - areas with high natural gas production potential in the Neuquén Basin, in Argentina - and 100 percent of the Colpa Caranda asset - natural gas producing fields in Bolivia. The base price of the deal is $892 million, corresponding to $1.327 billion for 100 percent of PESA.

The deal also includes the sale of the Dr. Ricardo Elicabe refinery, from where Petrobras has been sourcing its marine fuel products for the delivery of 380 centistoke (cSt) intermediate fuel oil, 180 cSt and marine gas oil (MGO) to clients in Bahia Blanca.
