Post-war Iraqi ‘lawlessness’ clouds picture in Unaoil bribery trial, jurors told

first_imgEmails central to Unaoil bribery trial paint an ‘incomplete’ picture, defence arguesAkle, 45, of dual Lebanese and British citizenship and Unaoil’s former territory manager for Iraq, took to the witness stand in London’s Southwark Crown Court for questioning about his role in securing contracts during a massive overhaul of Iraq’s oil and gas infrastructure in the post-Saddam years.The Iraq Crude Oil Export Expansion Project was conceived as a way to more than double the war-torn country’s crude oil export capacity from 1.8 million barrels per day (bpd) to 4.5 million bpd following US occupation.SFO prosecutors have argued that Unaoil used its influence and connections in within Iraq’s state-owned South Oil Company (SOC) to manipulate the outcome of tender processes in this scheme, including pipeline upgrades and the installation of single point mooring (SPM) systems.But Mr Sturman has said the case – which is based largely on a cache of emails detailing correspondence between the Unaoil executive team and its associates – paints an “incomplete” picture of the situation, and presents a perspective not available to Akle at the time of his alleged crimes.“The emails you have read are a sample, of a sample, of tens of thousands of documents, and the prosecution’s selection paints a picture that is incomplete,” he said.“That is not a criticism, but it’s a picture that’s very difficult to draw together fairly due to the security position that existed in Iraq.” The SFO corruption investigation centred on oil infrastructure tenders in Iraq in the post-Hussein years A state of lawlessness and civil unrest in Iraq in the years after the 2003 US invasion made rebuilding the country’s failing oil and gas infrastructure a matter of great urgency, jurors in the Unaoil bribery trial heard today (21 February).Employees and associates of the Monaco-based energy consultancy at the heart of a global corruption investigation were acting against a backdrop of violence and social instability, where the country’s critical energy infrastructure was at imminent risk of failure.And the payments alleged to have been made to bribe public officials to win industrial tenders were in fact believed to be for personal security in this dangerous and volatile environment.That is according to Jim Sturman QC, who is representing Ziad Akle – one of three defendants accused by the UK’s Serious Fraud Office (SFO) of conspiracy to make corrupt payments in Iraq on behalf of Unaoil and its agents.“Oil infrastructure was failing, and with it came the danger of even greater trouble in Iraq,” he said.It was the job of Akle, and his colleagues on the ground in southern Iraq, to persuade key local decision-makers that Unaoil’s equipment-manufacturing clients could accelerate the pace of these reconstruction efforts.“The sell was expertise”, said the defendant, adding that Iraqi energy operators faced numerous challenges including terrorist attacks on key infrastructure and problems procuring the right equipment and know-how for “engineering and maintenance” activities. Three men charged with conspiracy to make corrupt paymentsAccording to the prosecution, Akle was involved in “almost all the key events” relevant to the SFO investigations, holding a “very senior” position within the company.This seniority is something he disputes, detailing a chain of command headed by Unaoil founder Ata Ahsani, whose two sons Cyrus and Saman – both currently subject of related criminal investigations in the US – were next in line, along with another company executive Peter Willimont.Akle faces criminal charges for conspiracy to make corrupt payments alongside Steven Whiteley, 65, who was Unaoil’s general territories manager for Iraq, and formerly a vice-president of SBM Offshore; and Paul Bond, 68, who was a senior sales manager for SBM Offshore.Netherlands-based SBM Offshore is one of the companies in whose favour Unaoil is accused of rigging an SOC tender process.All three men deny the charges against them. A London court holding the Unaoil corruption trial has heard how alleged bribery payments were in fact believed to be for security measures A place like no otherMr Sturman argued that in the post-invasion years, Western companies seeking to work in the region were “viewed with suspicion” by Iraqi government and energy interests, which needed “persuading” to work with these foreign partners.This was the job of Akle and his colleagues on the ground in Iraq.They were Basil Al Jarah – who has already pleaded guilty to SFO corruption charges – and Oday Al Quoraishi, a man nicknamed “Ivan”.Unaoil is alleged to have paid Al Quoraishi a retainer ultimately totalling $608,000 to exert influence at the highest levels of SOC in favour of its clients.“They had a chance to be on the ground floor of rebuilding one of the world’s biggest oil reserves,” said Mr Sturman.“Akle knew that a retainer was being paid to Al Quoraishi, but we submit that he believed those payments were to ensure that, against the backdrop of life in Iraq, Al Quoraishi was safe.“Iraq was a place like no other. Law and order had completely broken down. People couldn’t depend on the state like we can.“There were tribal rivalries and militias – even the banks were being bombed. That’s what life was like in Iraq.”Akle never visited Iraq, the jury heard, and instead worked from Unaoil’s base of operations in Monaco.The trial continues.last_img read more

Delta Midstream announces initial investment led by Warburg Pincus

first_imgDelta’s founding management team has decades of leadership, operational and transaction experience across the midstream sector along with a track record of value creation Delta Midstream announces initial investment led by Warburg Pincus. (Credit: Capri23auto from Pixabay.) Delta Midstream, LLC (“Delta” or “the Company”), a newly formed midstream company, announced today that funds affiliated with Warburg Pincus, a global private equity firm focused on growth investing, have agreed to lead a line-of-equity investment in the Company. Delta, headquartered in Houston, TX, seeks to acquire, develop, and operate midstream assets of scale and will target opportunities across multiple basins in North America.Delta’s senior management team has extensive leadership, operational and transaction experience across the midstream and upstream oil and gas sectors, with a track-record of significant value creation. Delta will be led by the former executive management team of Noble Midstream Partners, including CEO Terry Gerhart, CFO John F. Bookout IV and COO John Nicholson, each of whom will serve in similar capacities at Delta. Matt Slatnick, former VP of Corporate Development at Noble Midstream, and Nick Alfermann, a former senior member of the energy investment banking team at Baird, also join Delta as founding partners.While at Noble Midstream, the team deployed significant growth capital at attractive rates of return and expanded the company from a largely single-producer midstream system at IPO in 2016 to a multi-customer, multi-basin enterprise of scale at the time of their departure in 2019. Collectively, Delta’s founding partners have in excess of 90 years of energy industry experience and $20 billion in transactional experience across the energy value chain as well as deep experience servicing energy customers and operating midstream assets.Delta will pursue a strategy of acquiring midstream assets within both private and public ownership structures across the hydrocarbon value chain including natural gas, natural gas liquids, and crude oil operations. Delta’s focus is on assets of scale with integration opportunities that can be optimized through the management team’s transaction, commercial, and operational expertise.Mr. Gerhart commented, “We are grateful to have the support and confidence of Warburg Pincus to assist us in evaluating a highly opportunistic landscape for energy investing. The firm’s patient capital and experience through multiple energy cycles offer unique advantages as we approach the current midstream environment.”David Habachy, Managing Director at Warburg Pincus said, “We are pleased to partner with Delta’s best-in-class management team and to leverage their industry relationships and strong track record to acquire and develop sizeable midstream assets. This investment underscores our long-term commitment to strategically deploying significant capital within the energy sector.” Source: Company Press Releaselast_img read more

 …it’s obvious that the West Franklin Street parking issue stopped commercial development on Franklin Street for nearly a year? …that the City wasted a bunch of our tax dollars on a study that several Zoning Board members chose to ignore?  …the Zoning Board didn’t vet remonstrators and spent more time/energy/effort/money setting up a neighborhood parking protection ordinance for neighbors to sign up so they could alleviate the parking problem in front of their houses (that didn’t actually exist)?  …when all said and done not one person that lives in the adjoining neighborhoods signed up for parking passes?  …all we can say is “are you kidding us”?IS IT TRUE we are told that the readers of the City County Observer are rolling on the floor laughing about the assertion that the new parking lot that is slated for the vacant lot behind DiLegge’s restaurant on North Main will provide avid bikers an opportunity to park there and enjoy a ride on North Main?…to anyone who has ever ridden a bike for recreational purposes the idea of driving to North Main Street that borders less than safe neighborhoods in Evansville, so they can peddle back and forth on the short bike path in that area, is simply absurd?IS IT TRUE it’s possible that the beneficiaries of the new 72 car parking lot are the owners of DiLegge’s restaurant, a strip club, and a cell phone business? …we wonder who sold this property to the city and for how much?  …we would like how much will this 72 car parking lot will cost the taxpayers to develop and did DMD put this project out to public bid?  …many of our readers are wondering if any of the entities that are directly benefiting from this project ever donated to Mayor Winnecke political campaigns?IS IT TRUE that the Evansville Thunderbolts professional hockey team that plays in the Ford Center have clinched a spot in the playoffs of the Southern Professional Hockey League and the City-County Observer sends out our congratulations to the team and owners (City of Evansville)? …in spite of clinching a spot in the playoffs the attendance for the Thunderbolts is ranked 10th out of the 10 team league?…So far this year the average attendance at home games in Ford Center is only 2,267 people that don’t even fill the lower section of the stadium?…the highest official attendance has been 5,215 and the lowest has been 1,278 with only 4 games drawing over 3,000 people?…these figures do not necessarily mean paid attendance either as there are always a multitude of free passes being offered to interested parties?…the Thunderbolts have won slightly less than half of their games and rank 6th out of 10 when wins and losses are registered?…while performance is better than last year it will take a whole lot more than average of 2,267 butts in the seats for this City of Evansville subsidized hockey team experiment to become financially sustainable?IS IT TRUE that the University of Evansville Aces are making a push to increase season ticket sales now that hometown basketball hero Walter McCarty has been hired as the new coach?…the first goal of bringing in 1,000 new season ticket holders is getting close to being achieved as the daily count is up to 801 and counting?…this push for ticket sales has already added nearly a third more packages to the coffers and may end up doubling attendance next year?…in the long run, it is still winning games over good teams that will determine the attendance of the games and we continue to wish Coach McCarty the best in drawing crowds, scheduling good home opponents and beating them?…it is not enough to take a colossal beating from a Duke or North Carolina team at home to keep fans engaged?…UE needs to beat the big teams and be competitive with all of them to avoid seeing all of these new season ticket holders go back to the couch to watch ESPN?IS IT TRUE the race between Steve Hammer, Vernon Stevens and Mike Duckworth is really becoming very interesting to watch? …that so far Steve Hammer is leading the fundraising effort by a comfortable margin with Mr. Duckworth in second place?   ..it looks like we have a real political barnburner on our hands? …we want to congratulate all the gentlemen involved in running for this seat because they have been very respectful towards each other?IS IT TRUE we are expecting a news release sometime today from the Evansville Convention and Vistors Bureau announcing the appointment of their Executive Director?  …we don’t know very much about this individual except they hail from a city up North?IS IT TRUE that the City of Evansville has narrowed its search to re-locate the Lloyd swimming pool down to two sites?  …we are told that the proposed Roberts Park development will be selected as the site to re-locate the new Lloyd swimming pool?IS IT TRUE we suggest that you planned to read next Mondays “IS IT TRUE” because it will be a real eye-opener?Todays “Readers Poll” question is: Do you feel that DMD should have spent our hard earned tax dollars on a 72 car paved parking lot on North Main Street?last_img read more

See briefs for more information. Port Authority to study options for trans-Hudson transitCould the long discussed idea to bring New York City’s No. 7 subway line to Secaucus become a reality? The Port Authority (PA) has sought Request For Proposals (RFPs) from consulting agencies last month to plan for a study assessing additional rapid trans-Hudson service.The Port Authority is carrying out the 18-month study in collaboration with New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), NJ Transit, and New York City.According to a study the PA commissioned in 2015, between 2010 and 2040, the agency expects a 50 percent increase in total peak-ridership using trans-Hudson transit. That same study also said that a No. 7 train extension could reduce demand for bus access to the Port Authority Bus Terminal by 25 percent by 2040.The PA has previously studied extending the MTA’s No. 7 train line from its Manhattan terminal at 34th Street between 11th and 12th Aves to Secaucus Junction. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg first proposed the idea in 2010. However, the MTA shot down the idea, saying it would be too costly. The PA will also look at additional options to improve transit between New York and New Jersey.But with federal funding for the Gateway Program – a multi-state and agency effort to rehabilitate the current North River Tunnel, and add another trans-Hudson rail tunnel – not likely to materialize, could extending the No. 7 line be the best alternative? Possibly, but not anytime soon. According to Port Authority Executive Director Rick Cotton, speaking at a Crain’s New York event Feb. 27, an extension probably wouldn’t start until after the Gateway Project finishes in 2030. If it ever finishes, that is. center_img Secaucus’ Recreation Department is seeking directors for their 2018 summer day camp programs. See briefs for more information.last_img read more

Two St. Joseph County Officers save 93 year old woman as home burns around…

first_imgIndianaLocalNews WhatsApp Courtesy of St. Joseph County Police The following is a release from the St. Joseph County Police Department:St. Joseph County – March 8, 2020 – Yesterday March 7th, while responding to call of a resident trapped in a fire, two St. Joseph County Police Officers rescued a 93-year-old woman from a burning home. At approximately 11:13 am Saturday first responders were dispatched to the 11700 block of Lincolnway in Osceola for a structure fire with a person trapped inside.Corporal Chris Boling of County Police was the first to arrive on scene. When he arrived, Boling was informed by home-owner Marvin Buwa that his 93-year-old mother-in-law Clara Webb was bed-ridden and still inside the burning home. Marvin showed Corporal Boling the first-floor bedroom window of the elderly woman. Fire was visible coming from the out of the structure of house just next to the window.Corporal Boling then went to an open front door and yelled inside and could hear a female voice inside asking for help. Boling attempted to crawl inside of the residence on his stomach, but only made it a few feet beyond the doorway before having to turn back because lack of visibility and choking on the heavy smoke. Corporal Boling then remembered his department issued gas mask and ran to retrieve it from his car.With the gas mask, Boling was able to enter the home and find the woman’s bedroom. Flames began to enter the bedroom as Boling lifted the woman from her bed and placed her onto the floor. While Boling was inside the bedroom, Corporal Jay Duley arrived on scene and attempted to enter the front door, however he also succumbed to the smoke and could not enter more than a couple feet inside the home. Duley could then hear Boling shouting and coming nearer to him. Corporal Boling had begun carefully dragging the woman toward the front door, being careful not to harm her previously broken hip.Once near the front door Corporal Boling and Corporal Duley both picked up the woman and carried her out to the front yard and covered her with blanket while medics provided medical attention. “Clara had been inside the burning house for ten minutes before the officer pulled her out,” said Buwa when asked about the incident. He continued, “in my book she would not have made it without those two county police officers.” Buwa believes the home will be demolished due to structural damage cause by the fire.Ms. Webb and both officers were all transported to area hospitals for medical treatment and later released Saturday. Both officers were treated for smoke inhalation and escalated carbon dioxide levels and were back on their patrol beat at 6:00 a.m. Sunday morning. Their supervisor has nominated Corporals Boling and Duley for Commendations for the life-saving efforts.“When the news seems to be filled with negative news about police officers, it can be easy to forget that we have a small army of officers out here daily working hard to keep our community safe however they can,” stated Sheriff Bill Redman about the actions of the two officers and his departments commitment to the community.
