PETRONAS – Involved in War Crimes?

There’s a title you never expected to see. It’s interesting that Lundin is implicated as well, as it is also a Malaysian PSC. Kinda reminds one of the time ExxonMobil was accused of supporting violence against the local Sumatran populace.

Report blames Swedish oil firm for Sudan war crimes

STOCKHOLM — A consortium led by Swedish Lundin Petroleum is partly to blame for war crimes committed in Sudan between 1997 and 2003, a report by the European Coalition on Oil in Sudan (ECOS) charged Tuesday.

ECOS, an umbrella group of European organisations “working for peace and justice in Sudan”, said it believed Lundin and its consortium partners Petronas Carigali Overseas from Malaysia and OMV Exploration from Austria “may have been complicit in the commission of war crimes and crimes against humanity” in Sudan.

Lundin Petroleum, previously called Lundin Oil, denied the allegations.
