Exxon Mobil (XOM) is in advanced discussions with potential buyers to take on the West Qurna-1 oilfield, Iraq's deputy prime minister for energy says. XOM soon will hand over the field to a company with the capabilities to exploit it, he says while declining to identify potential acquirers or their country of origin; Russia's Lukoil has said it will consider an offer to take over the field.
