U.S. oil and gas giant Halliburton is facing scrutiny after customs records revealed that over $7.1 million worth of its equipment was imported into Russia after the company sold its Russian office. The equipment exports took place within six weeks of the sale and continued intermittently until June 2023. The transactions raise questions about multinational companies’ ability to unwind their trading relationships and control product distribution through third parties. Halliburton stated it exited Russia in full compliance with sanctions, but these findings underscore the challenges faced by large industrial players in ending their ties with the Russian economy.
