Chevron Corp. (CVX), the second-largest U.S. energy company, may buy the rights to two oil exploration zones in Iraq’s Kurdish region from Reliance Industries Ltd. (RIL), the Sunday Times reported, without saying where it got the information.

The deal, which may be announced this week, is worth at least $200 million, the newspaper reported.

Total SA (FP) may buy a stake in oil fields in the region from WesternZagros Resources Ltd. (WZR), the Sunday Times said.
