    Maximum indication ofcooperation we received from majors was that they would try to find a basis forhelping AIOC dispose of oil or products for whichit could not itself find market if that were necessary to working out of properdeal.

    Re: Majors/Working out of proper deal

    The text was written by someone with a poor command of written English. "Majors" could mean "major companies", "major organizations", or a company or institution named "Majors".

    "Working out of a proper deal" means "negotiating a formal agreement".
