American Oil Worker Murdered in Venezuela, Government Says

A U.S. citizen employed by Intermoor Inc., a closely held Houston-based oil-services provider, was fatally shot in Venezuela on Jan. 27, according to the attorney general’s office.

Craig Dwayne Cormier, 36, was caught in crossfire at 11:30 p.m. in the city of Carupano in eastern Sucre state, the attorney general’s office said in a statement today. He had arrived in Venezuela two days earlier to conduct repair work on the Turquoise vessel that services an offshore platform owned by state-oil company Petroleos de Venezuela SA, according to the statement.
