BDY Group, a Turkish liquified petroleum gas (LPG) supplier, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with BB Energy, an independent energy trading company, to explore a strategic partnership and possible equity transaction, reported Anadolu Agency

This move is expected to enhance collaboration within Türkiye’s energy sector, with BDY potentially acquiring an equity interest in Hypco Petrolculuk, a downstream company. 

Under the proposed deal, BB Energy DownStream (BBED), the downstream arm of BB Energy, will sell 49% of its shares in Hypco Petrolculuk to BDY.  

Through the alliance, the companies aim to support their and Hypco Petrolculuk’s growth, while also contributing to Türkiye’s energy sector and economic growth. 

The collaboration between BDY and BB Energy will encompass logistics, trade management, and structuring international deals.  

This partnership is anticipated to enhance the competitive environment in the sector by expanding Hypco’s network of service stations and establishing ‘HYPCO GAS,’ a new entity for the importation and distribution of LPG into Türkiye.
