(Updates EOG and Volkswagen, adds Icahn Enterprises and Petroleo Brasileiro )

Sept 6 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 8 PM GMT on Tuesday:

** Turkey's deputy prime minister said that companies linked to a group blamed for a failed coup posed a risk of up to 5 billion lira ($1.70 billion) to Turkish banks but that the state seizure of such firms had minimized the risks.

** EOG Resources Inc said it would buy privately held Yates Petroleum Corp or $2.5 billion in stock and cash, in the latest move by a U.S. energy company to acquire acreage in the Permian Basin, one of the country's most cost-effective oil fields.

** Billionaire Carl Icahn's investment firm, Icahn Enterprises LP, said it would buy the remaining 18 percent of auto parts maker Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp for $9.25 per share, at a time when a slide in crude prices weighs on its energy business.
