Reliance Industries Eyeing Petronas Stake In Venezuela Project

Reliance Industries Limited (NSEI:RELIANCE) (RIL) is looking at buying Petroliam Nasional Berhad's 11% stake in Venezuela's $20 billion Carabobo-1 project, a company official said on September 1, 2015. Petroliam Nasional has decided to withdraw from the Carabobo-I project in August 2014 following dispute over terms with Venezuela's state explorer Petroleos de Venezuela SA (PdVSA). The stake was first offered to the partners, all of whom including the Indian consortium declined. Besides RIL, Chinese firms too are said to be interested in Petronas stake. Bham said RIL was looking at Petronas stake as well as other heavy oil upgrade projects in Venezuela for a possible participation. Latin America, he said, was of interest to RIL and the company was also eagerly looking at opening up of exploration licenses in Mexico.
