During the 1994-2004 period, Stanley worked for Dresser Industries’ M.W. Kellogg unit and Dresser, Kellogg Brown & Root, his attorney told ENR in 2008.
Halliburton Co. acquired Brown & Root in 1962 and in 1998 added Dresser Industries Inc., the parent of M.W. Kellogg Co. Dresser had acquired M.W. Kellogg in 1988.
Halliburton later merged Brown & Root and M.W. Kellogg into Kellogg, Brown & Root.
Halliburton terminated ties with Stanley in 2004 citing alleged violations of the company’s business-conduct code.
Kellogg, Brown & Root was part of Halliburton until 2007 when it split off and became a separate company, KBR Inc., based in Houston.
In a related criminal case in the wide-ranging, multi-year probe, the then-Kellogg Brown & Root LLC, the successor to Kellogg Brown & Root Inc., pleaded guilty in 2009 to charges related to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and was ordered to pay a $402-million fine.
Moreover, in related proceedings from 2010 through January 2012, KBR’s three joint-venture partners agreed to pay a combined $698.8 million in federal criminal penalties and Marubeni agreed to pay a $54.6-million criminal penalty.
Mythili Raman, principal deputy assistant attorney general for the Justice Dept.’s criminal division, said that the prison sentences “mark another important step in our prosecution of those responsible for a massive bribery scheme involving engineering, procurement and construction contracts in Nigeria.”
