I have checked and thus far have been unable to find any photographs of Rex Tillerson (ExxonMobil) or Robert Dudley (BP) bowing in the slightest to Putin. It seems that only Royal Dutch Shell executives, Jeroen van der Veer, Peter Voser, and Ben van Beurden, have been prepared to stoop that low.

BG Group Bid Speculation: Chris Finlayson, Shell’s secret weapon?

Screen Shot 2014-04-29 at 10.59.47Leads me to speculate whether Chris Finlayson was infiltrated into BG Group by Royal Dutch Shell for surreptitious purposes, including dragging the company down. If so, he appears to have done a magnificent job.

By John Donovan

BG Group has been the subject of bid speculation for a long time. e.g.

Extract from the FT article:

However, a top 10 shareholder said that, with BG now rudderless, it had become a prime takeover target. “It’s a green light to a potential bidder….”

ExxonMobil is identified as one such potential bidder.

According to an email I received this morning from a Shell source: “BG… reserves might also be good for Shell…”

Shell has certainly flirted with the idea many times. read more

Oman gripped by action against oil corruption

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 16.29.29Extracts from a PLATTS article by Tamsin Carlisle published 28 April 2014

The Oman government’s crackdown on graft in oil and gas contracting has become the talk of the town in Muscat, with opinions sharply divided on whether it is going far enough. Five officials of the gas division of Petroleum Development Oman, a joint venture between the government of Oman, Royal Dutch Shell, France’s Total and Portugal’s Partex, remain on trial in the Galfar cases, which are still before the court.  PDO Managing Director Raoul Restucci attributed the embroilment of Oman’s flagship oil and gas producer in the corruption scandal to a few bad apples. read more

BP And Shell Have Problems, But Manageable Ones, With The Russian Sanctions

Screen Shot 2014-04-26 at 10.44.49Extract from a Forbes article by Tim Worstall published 29 April 2014

The imposition of sanctions on various Russian people and organisations over the Ukraine threatened to pose a number of problems for the big energy companies, especially BP and Shell. If Rosneft itself were placed on the list, for example, or Gazprom, the the respective situations for BP and Shell would change markedly. …obviously neither of them is going to flout the law of a country where they have such considerable interests, as they do in the US.  read more
