During the podcast, Noe discusses: the easiest and most difficult aspects of FCPA compliance in the oil and gas industry; the extent of facilitating payments in the industry; whether oil and gas companies are too risk averse when it comes to FCPA issues; and civil actions by industry participants when business is lost because of a refusal to make bribe payments.FCPA Flash is sponsored by Kreller Group.For the past 30 years, Kreller has distinguished itself as a best-in-class enhanced due diligence provider.
