petrochinaBEIJING (Reuters) – PetroChina , China’s top oil and gas firm, said it had agreed to acquire Brazilian state energy firm Petrobras’ oil and gas assets in Peru for $2.6 billion.

The Chinese firm bought all the shares of Petrobras Energia Peru S.A., which has three oil and gas fields in Peru.

These fields currently produce about 800,000 tonnes (1.1023 ton) oil equivalent a year, PetroChina said in a statement on Wednesday.

“The three target blocks are all quality oil properties in Peru with achievable profit potential,” PetroChina added.
