(RTTNews) - Petrobras (PBR) agreed to sell its 90 percent stake in Transportadora Associada de GA?s S.A. known as TAG to France's Engie SA (ENGQF.PK, ENGIY.PK) and Canadian pension fund Caisse de Depot et Placement du Quebec or CDPQ for $8.6 billion.

ENGIE will have a stake of 58.5% in the asset (of which 29.25% through ENGIE Brasil Energia) and CDPQ will have a stake of 31.5%, while Petrobras will maintain a 10% stake in TAG's capital.

The transaction will be instrumental in the Group's rapid growth in Brazil from new sources of revenue,...," MaurA­cio BA¤hr, CEO of ENGIE Brasil observed.
