Ministry Wants PARCO off Privatization List
Jan 19 16
The government is likely to drop a 'jewel' from its privatization list after the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Resources opposed the official move to sell at least 10% stake in Pak Arab Refinery Company (PARCO). The Privatisation Commission has called a meeting of its board to review the option of removing PARCO from the list of entities that have been selected for capital market transactions, said sources in the Ministry of Finance and Privatization. The Commission convened the meeting after the Ministry of Petroleum opposed the proposal either to list PARCO on the stock exchange or to sell its 10% stake to Abu Dhabi government minority shareholder in the refinery. The petroleum ministry has recommended that Pakistan should continue maintaining its existing 60% shareholding in PARCO. It said that the government should neither offer its 10% shares to Abu Dhabi nor go for divestment through enlisting on the stock exchange. The petroleum ministry is of the view that if Abu Dhabi accepts the offer, it will disturb government's control over a strategic asset of the country. It has asked the commission that the entity be deleted from the list of companies being considered for privatization.
