Further to the receipt of the relevant regulatory approvals, Vitol Dubai Limited, part of the Vitol Group (Vitol), has completed the acquisition of shares equivalent to 10% of Hascol Petroleum Limited’s (Hascol) share capital, for a total sum of circa US$18.7 million. Vitol had previously acquired 15% of Hascol and its total shareholding is therefore equivalent 25% of the share capital of Hascol.
Hascol is a fast growing retailer within Pakistan with over 400 service stations nationwide. To date, sales have increased 29% in volume terms year-on-year and, with its countrywide network of infrastructure, Hascol is well positioned to continue to serve Pakistan’s growing energy needs.
