Agar Corporation, a US-based manufacturer of specialized flow metering equipment for the petroleum industry, allegedly made seven shipments of metering equipment to its affiliate in Venezuela with knowledge that the equipment would be incorporated into products destined for Sudan. Agar settled with OFAC for US$860,000 for violations of the Sudanese Sanctions Regulations, which were promulgated pursuant to the IEEPA. Agar also entered into a plea agreement with the US Department of Justice (DOJ) where it will pay a US$760,000 criminal penalty and forfeit US$380,000 for violating the IEEPA. Agar did not voluntary disclose these transactions to OFAC.
