Shell Gas BV, Shell Brazil Holding BV and Integral Investments BV today announces they have signed an agreement with Cosan Ltd. to execute an existing Put Option Agreement, which allows Shell to sell all of its 16.8% interest in Companhia de Gas de São Paulo to Cosan Ltd. Under the agreement, Shell will exchange its ~21.8 million common shares in Comgás for Cosan S.A. Indústria e Comércio shares plus cash.

Shell retains diverse operations in Brazil that are not affected by this transaction, including its Deep Water portfolio and Downstream business, which includes participation in Raízen, one of the leading biofuel producers in Brazil.
