ROYAL Dutch Shell has confirmed it is planning to sell its operations in Finland, as it looks to focus its operations on bigger markets.
The company said in a statement: "We believe that the possible selling of our Finnish operations is an attractive opportunity to investors."
Shell is also selling its Swedish assets, as part of a re-think of the business.
The company has a subsidiary in Finland, which imports, produces, sells and markets fuels and lubricants.
It has 325 staff in Finland but does not have any refineries.
