AMSTERDAM Feb 10 (Reuters) - SBM Offshore, the world's top oil production ship leasing company, said on Wednesday that U.S. authorities had re-opened an inquiry into bribery allegations by the Dutch company.

In November 2014, SBM offshore reached a record settlement of $240 million with Dutch and U.S. authorities relating to corruption charges in Angola, Brazil and Equatorial Guinea, involving an estimated $200 million in bribes between 2007 and 2011.
