Chevron to sell Bangladesh gas fields to Chinese consortium

Reuters reports: Chevron Corp is selling its three Bangladesh gas fields, worth an estimated $2 billion, to a Chinese consortium as the U.S. oil and gas group looks to shed non-core assets this year. The deal, if completed, would mark China’s first major energy investment in the South Asian country, where Beijing is pumping in billions of dollars in a race with New Delhi and Tokyo for influence.

Chevron sells its entire output from the Bangladesh fields — 16 million tons a year of oil equivalent — to state oil company Petrobangla under a production-sharing contract.
