Eni mulling opening up Iraq business to China's CNPC - sources
MILAN, March 27
MILAN, March 27 (Reuters) - Italian oil and gas group Eni is mulling the idea of opening up its business in Iraq to China's CNPC just as it did with its giant gas discovery in Mozambique, two sources close to the matter said on Wednesday.
The sources added no talks were under way at the moment with the Chinese group.
"The idea is being examined though we have not yet reached that point", one of the sources said.
Eni declined to comment.
The state-controlled oil major, with U.S.-based Occidental Petroleum Corp and South Korea's KOGAS, are developing the Zubair oilfield.
