    Husky Confirms Talks with PetroChina

    Company silent on how any move would affect its 600 convenience stores.

    CALGARY, Alberta
    Husky Energy Inc., reported to be the target of a takeover bid from PetroChina, confirmed yesterday it was in talks with China's leading oil firm regarding "potential transactions."

    But Husky, Canada's fourth-largest convenience store retailer with more than 600 Mohawk and Husky stores, warned in a brief statement it was giving no assurances that a deal would be completed. It said it was in discussions with other parties as well.

    Reuters reported PetroChina was working on a multibillion-dollar deal to buy the exploration and production assets of Husky, which is majority owned by Hong Kong tycoon Li Ka-shing.
