Royal Dutch Shell , Mitsubishi Corp and Trafigura presented bids for a contract to lift some 20.2 million barrels of Ecuadorean crude between 2020 and 2023, the Andean country's energy minister told reporters on Tuesday. The country expects to pick a winner for the contract, which is expected to generate $950 million (£740.45 million) in export income for Ecuador, in the coming days, said the minister, Jose Agusto.

A group led by Japan's Mitsubishi Corp will buy Eneco in a deal valuing the Dutch energy firm at 4.1 billion euros (3.5 billion pounds), Eneco said on Monday, beating off rival bids from Shell and private equity firm KKR . Eneco, a company owned by 44 Dutch municipalities and with a strong focus on renewable energy, said it had been swayed by Mitsubishi's plans to allow the company to continue its strategy and retain its corporate identity. The deal, backed by Eneco's boards and a committee representing shareholders, must still be approved early next year by the Dutch company's municipal investors.
TOKYO/SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Mitsubishi Corp , Japan's biggest trading group, said on Wednesday it would shut its Singapore-based crude oil and fuel trading unit after revelations in September that a trader there racked up enormous unauthorised trading losses. The unit, Petro-Diamond Singapore, will lose about 34.2 billion yen (£244.24 million) before taxes after closing the unofficial trading positions. Mitsubishi, Japan's biggest trading house by sales, said in September that a trader lost $320 million in unauthorised transactions in crude oil derivatives and that the matter had been reported to the police.
Mitsubishi Corp has handed over the full ownership of an iron ore expansion and rail and port infrastructure project in Western Australia to China's state-owned Sinosteel that has been slated to cost A$10 billion ($6.86 billion) to develop, the Japanese conglomerate said on Monday. The Japanese trading house divested all of subsidiary Crosslands Resources shares to Sinosteel unit Sinosteel Ocean Capital for an undisclosed sum, according to a statement from Mitsubishi. The project, which includes the mothballed Jack Hills iron ore mine, expansion project as well as a proposed rail and port facility, was once considered Australia's next big prospect for iron ore riches outside of the Pilbara, now the world's biggest export hub for iron ore.
Royal Dutch Shell , Japan's Mitsubishi Corp and private equity firm KKR have made the final round in an auction for Dutch utility Eneco, three sources close to the matter said. Eneco, estimated by analysts to be worth about 3 billion euros, aims to wrap up the process by Christmas. Royal Dutch Shell has teamed with Dutch pension fund manager PGGM while KKR has teamed with Dutch lender Rabobank, the sources said.
The trader fired by Mitsubishi Corp for allegedly losing $320 million in unauthorised bets on the price of oil denied wrongdoing in a statement issued by a lawyer on Wednesday. Wang Xingchen, also known as Jack Wang, did not engage in unauthorised trades in crude oil derivatives at Petro-Diamond Singapore (PDS), a division of Mitsubishi, according to Joseph Chen, a Singapore-based lawyer who claimed to be working on Wang's behalf. "Our client's instructions are that the trades had been reviewed by PDS' financial team and the losses were not caused by him but by Mitsubishi's decisions," Chen said in a statement.

(Bloomberg) -- Gojek is on track to raise $2 billion in its ongoing funding round before the end of the year, accelerating capital-raising to drive an expansion into mobile payments and food delivery.The ride-hailing giant has now handled about $1.5 billion of transactions outside of Indonesia, thanks to a budding expansion into the rest of Southeast Asia, President Andre Soelistyo told Haslinda Amin on Bloomberg Television. Backed by Google and Tencent Holdings Ltd., Gojek has rapidly grown an international business from scratch after setting up shop in countries like Singapore and Vietnam just nine months prior, he said.Gojek is trying to out-do Singapore-based Grab Holdings Inc. in the provision of a plethora of internet services that both companies hope to build into a coherent, all-purpose super-app. The Indonesian startup had raised about $1 billion from Tencent and others as of early 2019, but it remains on the hunt for capital. Amazon.com Inc. is said to be in talks to join the current round to bolster its presence in Southeast Asia, but Soelistyo declined to comment on potential backers. On Thursday, Grab co-founder Tan Hooi Ling said it will invest $150 million into artificial intelligence research, staffing and development over the next year to boost its own competing app and services.Read more: Grab Will Invest $150 Million in AI to Build Regional Super App“We can say now we’re not just an Indonesian company,” Soelistyo said in an interview at Bloomberg’s Sooner Than You Think conference in Singapore. Gojek is in “four countries and hopefully soon into six.”’Gojek debuted its app for hailing motorbike taxis in Jakarta in 2015. Since then, it’s evolved into a provider of ride-sharing services, food delivery and a digital wallet. It also offers a dozen other on-demand services such as house cleaning and medicine delivery.As part of the ongoing funding round, Gojek -- valued at $10 billion according to CB Insights -- had also secured investment from Visa Inc., Thailand’s Siam Commercial Bank Plc., Mitsubishi Motors Corp., Mitsubishi Corp. and Mitsubishi UFJ Lease & Finance Co. this year.

(Bloomberg) -- Amazon.com Inc. is in talks to make an investment in Indonesian ride-hailing giant Gojek, people familiar with the negotiations said, a move that could bolster the U.S. company’s presence in Southeast Asia.Amazon is one of the firms that have been negotiating with Gojek to join its ongoing funding round, according to the people, who asked not to be identified as the discussions are private. Under one scenario that has been considered, Amazon may make a meaningful investment for a slice of Indonesia’s most valuable startup, said one of the people. The talks may still fall apart or the terms may change.A Gojek representative declined to comment. Amazon couldn’t immediately be reached for comment outside of normal business hours. The Wall Street Journal earlier reported on the discussions.The move could mark Amazon’s most significant investment in Indonesia, one of the last frontiers of e-commerce. The Seattle-based retail giant took its first step into the region in 2017 when it entered Singapore with Amazon Prime Now. But in Indonesia, by far the region’s biggest and most promising market with 260 million people, it has no presence.By contrast, Chinese tech titans have made inroads into the region recently.

Japan's Mitsubishi Corp. was the lead investor in a $50 million (£40.7 million) funding round aimed at financing off-grid power company BBOXX's expansion in Africa and Asia, the British firm said on Wednesday.
