Furore relates to $1.3bn deal in Nigeria six years ago
Thursday 13 Apr 2017 Author: Tom Sieber

Oil major Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) is under pressure as leaked emails appear to validate claims of corruption over an oil deal in Nigeria in 2011.

The $1.3bn deal to acquire the OPL 245 oil licence, in partnership with Italian firm Eni, allegedly delivered a financial windfall for
Dan Etete, a former petroleum minister, and his associates through his company Malabu.

Shell and ENI are waiting to see if they will face trial in Italy over
the affair. (TS)
