According to the Financial Times, MW Kellogg, which is part-owned by KBR, will tell the SFO about its own misconduct in Nigeria in a bid to receive lenient treatment over an investigation that has been ongoing for over three years.

Kellogg’s misconduct in Nigeria was during the Bonny Island natural gas plant’s construction in the Niger delta.

KBR and Halliburton, a previous Kellogg co-owner, paid a $579 million fine last year for using a $130 million fund to bribe Nigerian officials to win more than $5 billion of construction work at Bonny Island.

The Financial Times reported that US government case documents revealed KBR had admitted using Kellogg as a conduit in an "intentional effort" to "insulate itself" from US laws against bribing foreign public officials.
