Petrobras Argentine Oil Assets Not Seizure Target, Folha Reports

April 17, 2012

Petroleo Brasileiro SA (PETR4)’s assets in Argentina are not an expropriation target after the country seized control of YPF SA (YPFD) from Spain’s Repsol YPF SA (REP), Folha de S.Paulo reported.

The Argentine government has already assured Petrobras, as the Brazilian state-run oil producer is known, that the seizure of its assets is not being considered, Folha said, citing a person with knowledge of the talks that it didn’t name.
