Corruption Risks in the Award of Extractive Sector Licenses and Contracts

Oversight actors can detect and prevent corruption in the oil, gas and mining sectors if they ask the right questions. While corruption schemes can be complex and opaque, the players involved are not endlessly creative: clear patterns and similar signs of problematic behavior do exist across resource-rich countries. This publication examined over 100 real-world cases of license or contract awards in the oil, gas and mining sectors in which accusations of corruption arose. The cases come from 49 resource-producing countries, and include the award of exploration and production licenses as well as service contracts and commodity trading contracts.
