Oct 9 (Reuters) - U.S. energy giant Exxon Mobil Corp is considering a sale of its Malaysian upstream offshore assets for up to $3 billion, Bloomberg reported on Wednesday.
Exxon is said to be working with advisers on the potential sale which could raise about $2 billion to $3 billion, the report bloom.bg/33lwolX added, citing people familiar with the matter.
The sale considerations are at a preliminary stage and Exxon could still decide against a deal, according to Bloomberg.
The company did not respond to a Reuters request for comment early on Wednesday.
The report comes less than two weeks after Exxon agreed to sell its Norwegian oil and gas assets to Var Energi AS for $4.5 billion as part of its plans to divest about $15 billion in non-strategic assets by 2021. (Reporting by Rebekah Mathew in Bengaluru; Editing by Subhranshu Sahu)
