Japan’s Marubeni Corp. said it has sold some of its stakes in Eagle Ford Shale assets to two undisclosed oil and gas developers. Financial details also were not provided. The sale is part of a plan to strengthen the bottom line, it said. Marubeni in 2012 acquired a 35% interest in Hunt Oil Co.’s South Texas portfolio, which gave it 52,000 net acres. The producers agreed at the time to acquire more acreage in the Eagle Ford. Marubeni also has acreage in the Denver-Julesburg Basin, and it works in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
