LNG Canada, a joint venture comprising Shell, PETRONAS, PetroChina, Mitsubishi Corporation and KOGAS entered into an Option Agreement with Rio Tinto in 2014 for various options to lease or purchase the wharf and areas of land.
Rio Tinto Chief financial officer Jakob Stausholm said "This sale demonstrates our ability to generate cash from an existing asset, without losing future cash flow, as we continue to drive value across our entire portfolio.”
