“We (ONGC, IOC and OIL) are one of the three shortlisted,” said a source.Houston-based ConocoPhillips is selling as much as 50% of its oil-sand reserves in Alberta.“There are some producing assets and exploration assets on offer,” the source added.

OVL managing director DK Sarraf indicated that North America was one of the areas they may be looking at. “Wherever there are opportunities, we certainly look at them.”
