Malaysia: Malaysia probing Norway’s Aker Solutions over Petronas dealings, sources say

Malaysia’s anti-graft agency is investigating Norway’s largest oil services provider Aker Solutions on suspicions of making false statements in its dealings with state-owned energy firm Petronas, three sources familiar with the probe said.

The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) is looking into allegations that Aker Solutions made false representations regarding the ownership of one of its Malaysian units in order to win licences from Petronas, a source with the agency and two other people told Reuters.

The licences are normally reserved for companies that met ethnic quota requirements under Malaysian law, said the sources, who all declined to be identified due to the sensitivity of the matter. The MACC did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment.
