Vietnam’s PV Oil Said to Sell Bach Ho Oil to Petrobras, Arcadia

PV Oil Corp., Vietnam’s state-run oil-marketing company, sold as much as 900,000 barrels of Bach Ho crude loading to Arcadia Petroleum Ltd. and Petroleo Brasileiro SA, or Petrobras (PETR4), said two people with knowledge of the deal, declining to be identified because the information is confidential.
