HALLIBURTON

On July 25, 1995, Assistant Secretary for Export Enforcement John Despres signed an order assessing a civil penalty of $2,610,000 against the Halliburton Company of Texas. The civil penalty was the largest fine imposed by the Department for export violations, and was part of a global settlement related to unauthorized exports and reexports of oil field equipment made to Libya by two Halliburton subsidiaries, Halliburton Logging Services (HLS) and Halliburton Geophysical Services (HGS). HLS exported six pulse neutron generators to Libya between December 1987 and August 1989, and made three unauthorized exports of pulse neutron generators to Kuwait or Yemen between August 1988 and January 1989. HGS made 68 unauthorized reexports of spare parts to Libya between April 1989 and April 1991, and one illegal export of U.S.-origin technical data to Libyan nationals in Tunisia in May 1990. Resolving the criminal proceedings in this case, a judge in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas accepted Halliburton's plea agreement with the U.S. Attorney's Office, and imposed a criminal penalty of $1,200,000 for three violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act in connection with the export of the pulse neutron generators to Libya.
