Aramco closes $12 billion pipeline deal with China, UAE backing
06.21.2021 - NEWS

June 12, 2021 [Arabian Business] – The consortium, led by US firm EIG Global Energy Partners LLC, has now closed a deal to acquire a 49 percent equity stake in Aramco Oil Pipelines Co., a new subsidiary

 

China’s Silk Road Fund and Hassana Investment Co., controlled by the Saudi Arabian government, joined a group investing $12.4 billion in Saudi Aramco’s oil pipelines.

The consortium, led by U.S. firm EIG Global Energy Partners LLC, has now closed a deal to acquire a 49 percent equity stake in Aramco Oil Pipelines Co., a new subsidiary, according to an emailed statement. The group includes Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund Mubadala Investment Co. and Samsung Asset Management. Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates and, along with Saudi Arabia, a key member of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries cartel.

The subsidiary will have rights to 25 years of tariff payments for oil transported through Aramco’s crude pipeline network. Aramco, the world’s biggest oil producer, will retain ownership of the other 51 percent of the shares.

Aramco may look to raise money from a similarly structured deal for its natural gas pipelines as part of a plan to sell non-core assets, people familiar with the matter have told Bloomberg. The funds would help the company maintain a $75 billion annual dividend, almost all of which goes to the government.
