Report: Shell sells Australian service stations, other assets for $2.4B

Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A, RDS.B) reportedly has sold its downstream Australian assets to Dutch-owned oil trader Vitol and the Abu Dhabi Investment Council for ~$2.4B.

Shell has been planning to sell the business, which includes a refinery, import terminals and 900 service stations, as part of new CEO Ben Van Beurden's worldwide divestment program.

The sale would mean Australia's Macquarie Group and partner Glencore Xstrata (GLCNF], GLNCY) were not successful in their efforts to buy the assets.

    Looks like Shell CEO means what he says about getting leaner.

    Somebody with deep pockets is liking what's going on with RDS.
