    The Richard Chandler Corp.

    The Richard Chandler Corp. (RCC) has made a CAD $73 million investment in Canadian-registered oil and natural gas exploration, development, and production company WesternZagros Resources.

    The Richard Chandler Corp., an international business group founded by New Zealand-born entrepreneur Richard F. Chandler has acquired 15.21% of WesternZagros Resources’ issued and outstanding common shares.
