CAPE TOWN (Reuters) - Chevron Global Energy (CVX.N) confirmed on Wednesday that it had signed a sales and purchase agreement with a wholly-owned subsidiary of China's Sinopec (0386.HK) (600028.SS) for Chevron's assets in South Africa and Botswana.
Chevron said in a statement the deal hinged on regulatory approval. Sinopec said earlier on Wednesday it has agreed to pay almost $1 billion for a 75 percent in Chevron's South Africa assets and unit in neighbor Botswana, securing its first refinery on the continent.
