MADRID (Reuters) - Australia's investment bank Macquarie Group plans to sell its 19.87% stake in Spanish oil pipeline and storage operator Exolum, Spanish newspaper Cinco Dias reported on Monday, citing unidentified financial sources.

The stake could be worth 1 billion euros ($998 million), the newspaper said.

Macquarie and Excolum did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Two months ago, rival newspaper Expansion reported Canadian pension fund Omers, Exolum's second-largest shareholder after U.S. buyout fund CVC, was planning to sell its 24.61% stake.
