HELSINKI, April 6 (Reuters) – Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) said on Tuesday it was planning to sell its operations in Finland, as it seeks to focus its operations on bigger markets.

“We believe that the possible selling of our Finnish operations is an attractive opportunity to investors,” Tony Patterson, the head of Shell’s operations in the Nordic countries, said in a statement.

Shell has a subsidiary in Finland, which imports, produces, sells and markets fuels and lubricants in the Nordic country. It has some 325 petrol stations and some 325 staff in Finland.
