Peru's President to meet with Repsol Chairman in Lima
BY RYAN DUBE
LIMA -- Peruvian President Ollanta Humala is planning to meet with the head of Repsol, a spokeswoman for the president said.
Mr. Humala is scheduled to meet in Lima with Repsol's chairman and CEO Antonio Brufau. The meeting comes a few days after Peruvian Prime Minister Juan Jimenez confirmed that the government is interested in buying a minority stake in Repsol's La Pampilla refinery in Peru.
Mr. Jimenez said last week that Petroperu, is studying the possibility of taking a stake in the refinery. He said at the time that no offer has been made.
The president's spokeswoman was unable to confirm if Mr. Humala and Mr. Brufau will discuss La Pampilla. A representative from Repsol wasn't available for comment.
Repsol has been selling some of its assets, and earlier this year, it sold off a minority holding in Peru LNG, which produces LNG.
