NEW YORK (Reuters) – Delta Air Lines Inc is redoubling efforts to sell an oil refinery in Trainer, Pennsylvania, after attempts to divest a stake in the plant late last year failed, according to two people familiar with the matter.
The Atlanta-based airline hired investment banks last year to offer a stake in its Monroe Energy refining subsidiary, signaling it wanted to share the risk of running an energy business.
The offer of a stake in the East Coast refinery, viewed as an undesirable market, failed to attract sufficient interest. Delta did not immediately respond to requests for comment
