BRUSSELS, Feb 21 (Reuters) - EU antitrust regulators are set to give unconditional clearance to world No. 1 oil producer Saudi Aramco’s $69 billion bid for a 70% stake in petrochemicals group Saudi Basic Industries Corp (SABIC) , people familiar with the matter said on Friday.
Aramco announced the deal in March last year, a move key to its diversification into refining and petrochemicals. (Reporting by Foo Yun Chee; editing by David Evans)
