Nigeria: Country Halliburton Probe - U.S. Expands Probe to Shell EA Project
28 April 2008
Posted to the web 28 April 2008

The Nigeria Halliburton probe has added a new dimention,Halliburton Co has said that an investigation into alleged bribes paid in relation to a Nigerian liquefied natural gas facility also may involve a Royal Dutch Shell PLC project.

The probe began in 2004 following alleged payments to Nigerian officials in respect of the building of the Bonny Island Liquified Natural Gas Facility.

Halliburton, the world's second largest oil field contractor, based in Houston, said in a regulatory filing at the weekend that it was notified of evidence of payments to Nigerian officials by an agent in connection with the offshore Shell EA project.

The evidence, reports say, arose from an investigation into a joint venture involving former Halliburton unit, Kellogg Brown & Root, now a separate company called KB Inc.The case has grown to involve investigators in Nigeria, the U.S., Switzerland and France.
