About this resource:

In 2009, a US engineering company named KBR pleaded guilty in a US court to charges arising out of the payment of $180m in bribes to Nigerian officials over the course of ten years, in order to win contracts to build and expand a liquefied natural gas terminal.  KBR and its parent company agreed to pay sanctions amounting to $579m. The bribes (some of which were handed over in a briefcase filled with $100 bills) were paid to officials in Nigeria’s government and the state-owned Nigerian National Petroleum Corp.
