(Reuters) – India’s Reliance Industries Inc on Wednesday said it had agreed to consider the divestment of its Eagle Ford Shale midstream joint venture with partner Pioneer Natural Resources Co.
 
Reliance owns a 49.9 percent stake in the business, EFS Midstream LLC, while Pioneer is the operator with a 50.1 percent stake in the Eagle Ford midstream system, which consists of 10 central gathering plants and about 460 miles of pipelines.
 
Pioneer will redeploy capital from the sale to its core oil rich assets in West Texas, and currently has no plans to divest its upstream assets in the Eagle Ford shale, the company said in a statement on Wednesday.
 
Reliance, which Reuters reported is seeking a buyer for its 45 percent stake in its Eagle Ford joint oil and natural gas venture, did not mention its plans for the upstream assets.
 
The midstream business was set up in 2010 to construct facilities to handle condensate and natural gas from wells in the Eagle Ford shale and Pioneer’s cash flow from the business is expected to be over $100 million in 2015, according to the company’s statement.
 
Reliance said in a statement to the exchange that its current investment in EFS Midstream was $208 million.
 
Reliance shares were down 0.73 percent at 995 rupees in mid-day trade in a broader Mumbai market that was up 0.17 percent. (Reporting by Aman Shah in Mumbai; Editing by Sunil Nair)
