Australian regulator to review BP purchase of Woolworths' petrol stations
[SYDNEY] Australia's competition regulator said on Thursday it will review BP Plc's A$1.8 billion(S$1.91 billion) purchase of 527 petrol stations from Australia's top grocer, Woolworths Ltd. "Once a submission is received the ACCC will commence a public review of the proposed acquisition," the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) said in a statement, without adding further detail.
Woolworths and BP announced the deal last month, saying it was subject to regulatory approval and that it would not be completed before January 2018.
