Turkey's Vakifbank, Isbank to lend state oil company $1 bln to buy Azeri gas project stake

ISTANBUL, Aug 21 (Reuters) - Vakifbank, a state-run Turkish lender, and Isbank, the country’s biggest non-state lender, will lend $1 billion to state oil company TPAO so it can buy Total’s stake in an Azeri gas project, an energy official said on condition of anonymity.

TPAO in May signed a $1.5 billion agreement to acquire Total’s 10 percent stake in Azerbaijan’s Shah Deniz gas project. The deal lifts TPAO’s stake in the project to 19 percent, while the French energy company exits the project.
