Malaysian state oil and gas company Petronas announced on Tuesday that it’s selling a 15% stake in Progress Energy’s LNG reserves in British Columbia to Asia’s largest oil refiner, China Petrochemical Corp. (also known as Sinopec Group).

Sinopec is the fourth in a consortium of LNG buyers interested in Petronas’ Canadian LNG project.
