KEEPING the books for a £200bn behemoth is an endlessly taxing task. Just ask Simon Henry, Royal Dutch Spell’s finance director, who last week unveiled a plunge in profits of almost 40%.

Thankfully, he can call on exemplary advice to help keep track of Shell’s petrodollars. The company’s chief auditor is Ross Hunter at PwC – a man with an interesting past. According to the accounting firm’s website, Hunter helped Nat Rothschild’s Bumi in its “transition from a cash shell to a leading Indonesia-based thermal coal group”.

Curiously, there is no mention of Bumi’s subsequent fall, a shredded share price, allegations of corruption and a missing $270m. Of course, none of the blame can be pinned on Hunter. As Shell shareholders will doubtless agree, he’s just the man to count the beans at Britain’s largest public company.
