Reuters reveals Aramco pipeline investors to refinance loan with bonds next year

Reuters revealed that EIG Global Energy Partners will lead a yet-unnamed consortium to issue billions of dollars in bonds across two or three transactions to replace bank debt backing an investment in Saudi Aramco’s oil pipeline assets. The Washington, D.C.-based firm’s consortium will issue bonds to replace $10.5 billion in so-called staple financing that was arranged by Aramco for potential suitors to take the 49% stake, Reuters sources said. The $12.4 billion deal, announced earlier in April, gives the EIG-led group a stake in Aramco Oil Pipelines, which has the rights to 25 years of tariff payments for oil transported through Aramco’s oil pipeline network that traverses the world’s largest crude exporter.
