NEW YORK July 8 (Reuters) – The head of Royal Dutch Shell’s (RDSa.L: Quote) U.S. arm told CNBC that the company could be interested in some BP Plc (BP.L: Quote)(BP.N: Quote) assets if its peer tried to sell off properties.

“If BP decided to sell assets clearly there are some things that would make sense for our portfolio. But that’s a later decision because of what’s happening now,” Shell Oil Co President Marvin Odum said.

BP, which has been battling the oil spill from a well blowout in the Gulf of Mexico since April, has announced plans to sell $10 billion in assets to help shore up its cash position.
