Endeavor Energy Resources LP, the largest privately held oil producer in the Permian Basin, is weighing a sale after receiving takeover interest from major energy explorers, according to people familiar with the matter. Midland, Texas-based Endeavor could draw interest from suitors including Chevron Corp. and BP Plc, said the people, who asked to not be identified because the matter isn’t public. It’s working with JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and could fetch more than $10 billion in a sale, they said. Endeavor began working with those advisers last year to evaluate an initial public offering, one person said. It decided to pursue a sale after getting inquiries from multiple potential buyers in the last six months, this person said. Bloomberg
