Papua New Guinea oil and gas firm InterOil said Monday that had received an acquisition bid from ExxonMobil that's more lucrative than a previous deal offered by Oil Search Limited, setting up a potential bidding war.

The ExxonMobil offer represents a "superior proposal" under the terms of InterOil's previous tie-up agreement, under which Oil Search now has three days to make a new offer, InterOil said.
