July 9 (Bloomberg) — Royal Dutch Shell Plc is in talks to buy a A$2 billion stake in Santos Ltd.’s Gladstone liquefied natural gas project in Australia, the Australian Financial Review reported, without saying where it got the information.

Shell may buy between 30 and 35 percent of the project, the newspaper reported. Korea Gas Corp. and China Petroleum & Chemical Corp., also known as Sinopec, are in talks with Santos to sign long-term sales agreements, it said.
