Aug 23 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2000 GMT on Friday:

** Exxon Mobil is selling over half of its 60 percent holding in Iraq's West Qurna-1 oilfield project to China's biggest energy firm PetroChina and Indonesia's Pertamina, Iraq's oil minister confirmed.

** Italian insurer Unipol is likely to sell on the market a 3.8 stake in Mediobanca that it must dispose of for antitrust reasons, sources close to the matter said, confirming a press report which hit shares in the Italian bank on Friday.

** Poland's financial watchdog is unwilling to let Dutch lender Rabobank sell its Polish unit BGZ to a rival with a lower credit rating, a stance that could derail a possible $1 billion deal, sources familiar with the situation said.
