Japan’s Mitsubishi has submitted a non-binding bid to buy the assets worth $2.5 billion, Reuters reported on Thursday, citing unidentified sources.
Indian duo Oil & Natural Gas Corporation and Oil India are also among a list of possible suitors said to be preparing to submit bids, the news wire continued.
Reuters reported in February that Murphy was looking to shed more than $2 billion-worth of assets in Asia, including up to 30% in its Malaysian operations.
The US independent’s Malaysian assets accounted for 45% of its total production in 2012.
