Angola: US DoJ closes Cobalt FCPA probe

Issue 340 - 16 Feb 2017 | 1 minute read
Cobalt International Energy said on 9 February that the US Department of Justice (DoJ) had closed its investigation into Cobalt’s operations in Angola. The DoJ and the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) began investigating Cobalt in 2011 in response to allegations of a connection between senior Angolan government officials and Nazaki Oil and Gas, an Angolan company that, until 2014, held a working interest alongside Cobalt on blocks 9 and 21 (AE 284/21).
