In 2010, Technip was facing charges under the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) for its alleged participation in a decade-long scheme to bribe Nigerian government officials to obtain engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts. The EPC contracts to build liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities on Bonny Island, Nigeria, were valued at more than $6 billion.
Following the imposition of a monitor in a joint resolution by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) and US Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), Technip retained FRA to review the company’s anti-bribery measures and export control compliance program, provide forensic accounting and eDiscovery services and train the client’s internal audit staff to autonomously conduct future internal reviews.
In 2010, Technip agreed to pay a $240 million criminal penalty to resolve the FCPA charges.
