Exclusive: Petrofac facing legal dispute over Laggan-Tormore bonuses


Petrofac is facing a legal battle over claims it has withheld hundreds of thousands of pounds in bonus payments from workers on its gas plant in Shetland. Contractors on the £800million Laggan-Tormore plant claim the oil and gas services giant has repeatedly fobbed off attempts to pay out bonuses worth up to £250,000. Tavish Scott, the Scottish Liberal Democrats’ Shetland candidate, weighed into the row, labelling the situation “unacceptable” and demanded that Petrofac pay the bonuses.

Petrofac said to be investigating £1.4m bribery allegations against ex-director


Energy service group Petrofac is investigating bribery allegations against one of its former directors. The firm took the step after leaked documents were brought to its attention indicating that Peter Warner had authorised “confidential payments” worth £1.4million to win a contract in Kuwait. The documents include an email exchange in 2007 appearing to show Mr Warner, who was Petrofac’s executive vice-president of sales and marketing, requesting payments using a code which substituted the word “millions” for “metres”.
