In 2006, Norwegian petroleum company Statoil
was ordered by a US court to pay $21M in fines for breaking the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
when paying bribes
to an Iranian public servant.
While Statoil's primary listing is with the Oslo stock exchange, it is also listed with the NYSE. To what extent is Statoil's activities outside of the US subjected to US law?
