The United States is investigating alleged Libor rigging and separately looking into transactions made by the bank involving Libyan counterparts.
The settlement which deals with the U.S. Justice Department could be announced as early as this week, according to Bloomberg sources.
Bloomberg said the portion of the penalties to be paid to France is still being worked out, citing sources.
The bank had earlier said that it set aside about 1 billion euros ($1.2 billion) to cover the Libor and Libyan investigations.
Societe Generale did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comment.
