There’s a new test for Russia’s famous axiom, “What Gazprom wants, Gazprom gets.” The answer from the embattled LSE-listed oil company Imperial Energy: not so fast.

On Friday the company rejected a bid from Gazprombank to acquire a 25% stake, which caused their stock price to dip slighting in trading. Earlier this month it was revealed that this banking arm of the Russian government was behind this “mystery bid” for the company, which was generally seen as the Kremlin’s peace offering to make all those pesky regulatory troubles go away (this energy firm is only just the latest of many private companies to come under the wrath of Rosprirodnazor’s Oleg Mitvol over its reserves numbers). read more

Shell has pulled out of a £200m deal to buy into Ukrainian gas fields only two days after it was signed after a boardroom row at its controversial would-be partner, Regal Petroleum.

The Anglo-Dutch company agreed on Wednesday to buy a 51% stake in Regal’s Ukrainian gas fields for $50m (£24m), saying it would invest the first $360m of development costs. But on Thursday Regal abruptly announced that its chief executive, Neil Ritson, and chairman, Francesco Scolaro, had been replaced by David Greer, a former Shell executive. read more
