SAO PAULO, June 30 (Reuters) - Indian conglomerate Essar Group made a binding offer to Brazil’s Petroleo Brasileiro SA to buy the country’s second largest oil refinery, two people with knowledge of the matter said on Tuesday.
Petrobras, as Brazil’s state-controlled oil producer is known, has received at least two offers for the Landulpho Alves refinery in Bahia, known as Rlam. The other is from Abu Dhabi’s Mubadala Investment Company.
