Adair Yemen Sues Occidental [Archives:2001/42/Front Page]

October 15 2001

In a press release sent to Yemen Times on Saturday, October 13, Adair Exploration and Adair Yemen Exploration, Ltd. announced that they have filed a lawsuit against Occidental Oil and Gas Corporation and several former employees in the company claiming damages of hundreds of millions of dollars.
The lawsuit alleges that the former employees attempted to take advantage of opportunities for their own benefit in Yemen, instead of the benefit of the company as they should have been doing. Furthermore, it alleges that they interfered with Adair’s business relationships with its contractors and employees.
Adair International expressed its disappointment in August 2001 at the Yemeni Ministry of Oil and Mineral Resources for removing Adair as operator from block (20) in the Mareb/Shabwa region.
