Fraud office in Petrofac probe
The Serious Fraud Office is investigating oil services company Petrofac over “bribery, corruption and money laundering” allegations.
The watchdog confirmed the firm, its subsidiaries, and their officers, employees and agents are now under investigation.
Petrofac said it is aware of the new investigation, which is in connection with a historic probe into dealings at the Ahsani family-run Unaoil.
Petrofac engaged Unaoil, a Monaco-based company, for the provision of local consultancy services primarily in Kazakhstan between 2002 and 2009.
