Shell having difficulty raising money from asset sales, FT reports

Royal Dutch Shell is trying to sell $30B of assets to pay off some of the debt that helped finance its $50bn takeover of BG Group, but the company is finding it harder to be a seller than it was to be a buyer, said Financial Times. At the end of June, proceeds from completed disposals stood at $1.5B and the auctioning process for North Sea assets valued at about $2B is making progress, though there are questions over a $1.6B deal to sell a 33% in Showa Shell, the group's Japanese refining partner, the report stated. To hit its goal of $6B-$8B worth of disposals this year, Shell would need to sell at a rate "far in excess" of its current pace, FT added. Reference Link
