Shell’s New Zealand boss has reportedly said business was proceeding “as usual” amid reports the company was planning to divest its entire $1billion-plus portfolio in the country.
Australian media reports said late last week that JP Morgan had been hired to offload Shell’s assets, which were placed under review by the oil giant in December.
But Rob Jager told New Zealand media outlets the company was still looking at a range of options and that it was “business as usual”.
He said JP Morgan had been brought in to support the review process, the reports said.
Earlier this summer Shell sold its stake in the Maui Pipeline to Australia’s First Gas.
