Transocean linked to Petrobras scandal
The giant corruption investigation surrounding Brazil’s state-run energy giant, Petrobras, has now heard allegations that the world’s largest offshore rig contractor, Transocean, might have been handing out kickbacks to Petrobras executives.
A former executive at Brazil’s state-run oil company has testified claiming he received payments made by someone claiming to be a Transocean agent in exchange for a rig-operation contract from Petrobras.
Petrobras has already severed ties with some 20 firms who have been caught up in the multi-billion dollar scandal.
