Transocean Ltd., the world’s largest offshore rig contractor, has been linked for the first time to the corruption probe of Petroleo Brasileiro SA, the state-owned energy giant at the center of Brazil’s biggest corporate scandal, according to Bloomberg.

A former executive at Brazil’s state-run oil company has testified to receiving what he says were payments made by someone claiming to be a Transocean agent in exchange for a rig-operation contract from Petrobras. Transocean is investigating the allegations by Eduardo Musa, the former Petrobras executive, and will cooperate with governmental investigations, the company said in a statement Friday.

“Transocean has not identified any wrongdoing by any employee or any of its agents in connection with the company’s business,” it said. “Transocean is investigating these recent allegations made by Mr. Musa and will also continue its efforts to ensure no violation of company policy or law has, or will, occur.”

As a result of the probe into the alleged pay-to-play scheme, known as Carwash, Petrobras has temporarily blocked more than 20 suppliers from future work with the oil company, which claims it is a victim of the bribery and is cooperating with authorities. Transocean is not one of those companies. Bloomberg Reports
