Puerto Rico Grid Contractor Faces Mounting Claims From Bribery Probe

Rival contractor sues Mammoth Energy Services, alleging it was cheated out of business in Puerto Rico

Mammoth Energy Services Inc., which rebuilt much of Puerto Rico’s power grid after Hurricane Maria, is facing a lawsuit alleging the company paid bribes to cheat a competing contractor out of $500 million in government business.

Energy-infrastructure giant MasTec Inc. has sued Mammoth in Miami federal court, accusing the Oklahoma City-based company of hoarding roughly $1.4 billion in utility repair work for itself after Puerto Rico’s electric system was destroyed in the 2017 hurricane season.
