Albpetrol is the state owned oil company in Albania.[1] Albpetrol values its assets at $497 million.[1] The government is now seeking to privatize it.[1] As of October 2012, Vetro Energy, a US-based consortium with Rezart Taçi as majority shareholder,[2] is the frontrunner in a tender to buy Albpetrol with an offer of €850 million.[3] On October 3, 2012 Vetro Energy was valued by Patton Boggs as the best bid beating out China's Win Business Bright Oil and Canada's Bankers Petroleum.[4]
