RIO DE JANEIRO, March 3 (Reuters) - Brazil's state-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA plans to focus its $13.7 billion asset-sale plan on the sale of minority stakes as it seeks to raise cash without giving up control of oil fields, power plants and utilities, a source with direct knowledge of company plans said on Tuesday.

Petrobras, though, is not willing to sell assets at any price despite the recent sharp decline in the price of oil , said the source who requested anonymity because they lack of authorization to speak to the press. (Reporting by Rodrigo Viga Gaier; Writing by Jeb Blount)
