The Chinese oil company Poly-prospecting PGL’s contract with Ethiopia has been canceled, according to the Ethiopian authorities, who claimed it had not met the contract’s technical and financial requirements.
The business, which is partially owned by the Chinese government, has been drilling for gas and oil in eastern Ethiopia’s Ogaden Basin.
Residents in the area claim it contaminated water supplies by improperly disposing of hazardous garbage.
The business hasn’t responded to the allegations.
