On May 14, 2018, we acquired 100 percent of the issued and outstanding equity interests in Pure Biofuels del Peru S.A.C. (Pure Biofuels) from Pegasus Capital Advisors L.P. and various minority equity holders (collectively, the sellers). Pure Biofuels markets refined petroleum products through a network of logistics assets throughout Peru. Pure Biofuels owns a terminal at the Port of Callao, near Lima, with approximately 1 million barrels of storage capacity for refined petroleum and renewable products. Through one of its subsidiaries, Pure Biofuels also owns a 180,000-barrel storage terminal in Paita, in northern Peru, which is scheduled to commence operations later in 2018. We paid $466 million from available cash on hand, of which $130 million was for working capital. The amount paid for working capital was adjusted in the third quarter of 2018 and is subject to further adjustment pending the final working capital settlement that is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2018. This acquisition, which is referred to as the Peru Acquisition, is consistent with our general business strategy and broadens the geographic diversity of our refining segment.
