The report cited “people familiar with the matter,” though the assertion has not been confirmed by The Telegram.

Rumours of a sale started the first week of September, with reports out of Seoul stating a KNOC representative said the company was considering unloading Canadian assets. Those assets would include the refinery at Come By Chance, operated by the KNOC subsidiary Harvest Energy Trust.
