The bonds, part of a $70 billion financing package, will be issued in multiple currencies, and with several different maturities, Bloomberg said.

The remaining $10 billion to $15 billion of financing is in the form of term loans, Bloomberg said, adding that no formal mandates had been signed with the financing banks.
