CEPSA is involved in activities across the full supply chain of energy production, from exploration and production to refining and selling the product through their petrol stations.

Sienna Capital & CEPSA 

Sienna Capital committed USD 110 million alongside the Carlyle Group into CEPSA and USD 55 million into their second energy fund, CIEP II. 


In accordance with Luxembourg law, the valuation of the assets will be performed, at the AIFM’s discretion, by the AIFM itself and with the support of such external agents as required from time to time. 


In October 2019, the acquisition of a 37% stake in CEPSA from Mubadala Investment Company was completed; Sienna Capital has exposure to this transaction through its commitment to CEPSA directly and indirectly through CIEP II.
