Repsol looking to make big U.S. acquisition: WSJ
- Repsol (REPYY.PK) is looking to spend $5-$10B on a North American E&P company as the Spanish oil major seeks to gain a foothold in "stable-market" economies after the Argentina debacle imperiled the company's investment-grade rating, WSJ says.
- Companies mentioned in the article as possible targets based on their size and perceived willingness to pursue a deal include Whiting Petroleum (WLL) and Kodiak Oil & Gas (KOG) - those names may get a lift from the article come Monday.
