LONDON, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Murphy Petroleum’s British subsidiary Murco has signed an agreement to sell its retail assets to unlisted UK firm Motor Fuel Group, less than two weeks after Murphy announced the sale of its Welsh refinery.
“Murphy is pleased to announce the signing of this agreement, following closely the signing of the agreement last week for the sale of the Milford Haven refinery,” the company said in a statement.
The deal is expected to close no later than Sept. 30, it added.
