Screen Shot 2013-12-22 at 19.09.52(Reuters) – Commodity trader and miner Glencore (GLEN.L) confirmed on Tuesday its interest in buying oil assets that oil major Shell (RDSa.L) is selling in Nigeria. A source said last month that Glencore and commodity trading house Mercuria were among the short-listed consortiums expected to make final bids on Nigerian energy assets worth around $3 billion that Shell and another two oil majors are selling. Together with Macquarie Group Glencore had also made an unsuccessful attempt to buy Shell’s downstream Australian assets, which were then sold to oil trader Vitol and the Abu Dhabi Investment Council for about A$2.4 billion ($2.2 billion) last month.
