Pertamina Interested in Lyondellbasell Oil Refinery, France Says

PT Pertamina, Indonesia’s state oil company, is interested in a refinery in southern France that LyondellBasell Industries NV threatened to shutter permanently, according to French Industry Minister Arnaud Montebourg.

The minister “received today a letter of intent in which Pertamina state-owned oil and gas company confirms its interest in the Berre-l’Etang refinery,” Montebourg said in a statement, without saying whether it was considering buying the facility.
