“This transaction is a positive step forward in Puma Energy’s commitment to optimising our global portfolio and deleveraging our balance sheet by the end of 2020. Puma Energy continues to work closely with all partners across the Americas and remains fully committed to operations in the region,” said FitzGerald, CEO of Puma Energy.

Puma owns 186 retail sites in Paraguay as well as two fuel terminals, with storage capacity of 72.3m cubic metres, according to its website.
