The Times (City Diary): Royal Dutch Shell Plc: Nothing against Ivan Fedorchenko

(Sakhalin Island is not for the faint-hearted. The extreme Arctic conditions give an average winter temperature in the north of -24ºC (-11.2ºF). The sea is frozen for six months of the year and the region is also prone to typhoons and earthquakes.)


ADVERTS from Shell feature a figure in a parka against a snow-covered landscape. Ivan Fedorchenko is in charge of production at Sakhalin Energy — he even has a page on the company website. Nothing against Ivan, but would that be the same Sakhalin project whose cost has doubled to $20 billion, and where environmentalists have protested over the possible extinction of the northwest grey whale? and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
