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.
