Abu Dhabi sovereign investor Mubadala Investment Co is in talks with a lead member of a US-based consortium investing $12.4 billion in Saudi Aramco’s oil pipelines, Bloomberg reported, citing a spokesperson for the UAE fund.

However, Bloomberg noted that a final agreement is yet to be reached between the two parties.

On Friday, the Saudi oil producer agreed to a $12.4 billion deal to sell a 49 percent stake in its pipelines to a consortium led by US-based EIG Global Energy Partners. It is Aramco's largest deal since its record $29.4 billion initial public offering in late 2019.

According to Aramco, sale of its stake in Aramco Oil Pipelines Company will not impede its crude production.

“This transaction will not impose any restrictions on Saudi Aramco’s actual crude oil production volumes that are subject to production decisions by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” Saudi Aramco said in a bourse filing to the Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul) on Sunday.
