BRASILIA Dec 17 (Reuters) - Brazil's government is in talks with several foreign companies interested in taking over construction work of new power transmission lines left by struggling Spanish conglomerate Abengoa, the minister of Mines and Energy Eduardo Braga said on Thursday.

Braga declined to name the companies, but said they were big players interested in buying or associating with Abengoa. He told foreign correspondents that the government expects to find a solution for the situation soon and resume construction of the power lines. (Reporting by Anthony Boadle and Marcelo Teixeira)
