Royal Dutch Shell Plc and Eni SpA face additional corruption allegations over a Nigerian oil deal, after the West African country's government said in a London lawsuit that it believes a handful of executives, including CEOs, were tied to more than $1 billion in bribery payments.OPL 245 was created in 1998, when the Petroleum Minister Dan Etete carved out the offshore license and awarded it to his own company, Malabu Oil and Gas Ltd.
