U.S. Judge Approves Sales Process for Shares in Citgo Petroleum's Parent
10.17.2022 By TankTerminals.com - NEWS

October 17, 2022 [Yahoo!] – An auction schedule to sell shares in Citgo Petroleum’s parent company, which could force a breakup of the Venezuela-owned U.S. oil refiner, was approved by a U.S. federal judge and filed on Tuesday.

 

U.S. District Judge Leonard P. Stark’s order sets bidding and sales procedures, hiring of investment banker Evercore Group and directs an approach to the U.S. Treasury Department to seek a decision on any share sale. The Treasury has protected Citgo from creditors by previously not allowing transactions.

Citgo declined to comment.

Delaware District court judge Stark last year approved the sale of shares in PDV Holding, whose only asset is Citgo shares, to pay Canadian miner Crystallex $970 million. The debt is outstanding from an expropriation judgment on its Venezuelan assets.

Citgo is the crown jewel of Venezuela’s overseas assets, and has split from its Caracas-based ultimate parent, Venezuelan state-run oil firm PDVSA. It is currently under control of Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido.
