Odebrecht in talks to sell Peru pipeline to Brookfield -finmin

LIMA, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Brazilian construction conglomerate Odebrecht SA is in advanced talks on selling its majority stake in a $5 billion natural gas pipeline in Peru to Canada’s Brookfield Asset Management Inc, Peru’s finance minister said in a television interview.

The two companies and the government of Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski reached a preliminary deal on Friday, Alfredo Thorne told local journalist Jaime Althaus in an interview on Canal N late on Tuesday.

Brookfield and Thorne did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Odebrecht said it was “still early” to comment.
