FRENCH CONNECTION: French oil company Total SA said Monday it had sold its stake in an offshore oil field near Nigeria for $2.5 billion to the Chinese state-run firm Sinopec Corp.

CHINESE EXTENSION: China is increasingly looking across Africa for raw materials and commodities to fuel its massive economy.
