Pacific Enterprises, the newly named conglomerate that owns Southern California Gas and Thrifty Drug, agreed Friday to buy a Texas oil and gas company for $339 million. It was the firm's second big oil acquisition announced this month. The deal to buy Sabine Corp. of Dallas for $24 a share drove off another bidder, Presidio Oil Co., which wished the two companies well but said its $20-per-share offer was all Sabine is worth.
