June 14 (Reuters) - French energy giant Total SA TOTF.PA is close to acquiring a 30% stake in Indian gas distribution company Adani Gas ADAG.NS for upwards of rupees 5,500 crore ($800 million), the Times of India reported on Friday.
The deal is expected to trigger an open offer to public shareholders of Adani Gas, and Total may end up having a roughly equal stake in the company as billionaire promoter Gautam Adani, the report said.
Adani Gas, an arm of Adani Group, operates a distribution pipeline network of over 6,000 km and caters to nearly 350,000 retail customers, the report said.
Total and Adani Gas were not immediately available for comment.
