The non-refining, refinery transaction: Chevron divesting its assets in South Africa

Report summary

As Chevron finalises a sales and purchase agreement for its businesses in South Africa and Botswana, the media has focused its attention on the Chevref refinery in Cape Town. Wood Mackenzie believes though the value of the deal lies not in the refinery but Chevron's other assets in the country- including a service station distribution network and access to the Saldhana Bay crude oil storage facilities. The future of the refinery in Cape Town faces both political and market challenges from domestic and international sources. In this insight, we discuss why either Sinopec or Glencore remain prepared to pay nearly US $1 billion for Chevron's businesses in South Africa, and the future of the downstream sector in the country.
