I WORKED IN SEIC PROJECT FINANCE. IN SUMMER 2004 THE COST ESTIMATE WAS INCREASED AFTER A GROUP REVIEW TO $12B. BY END OF YEAR SEIC KNEW COST WAS REALLY ABOUT $20B BUT SENIOR MANAGEMENT DIDN’T FORMALLY REPORT THIS BECAUSE SHELL DIDN’T WANT ANY MORE BAD NEWS THAT YEAR AFTER RESERVES REPORT.
SO, IN EARLY 2005 SHELL STARTED A ‘BOTTOM UP’ COST REVIEW TO FINALISE THE NUMBER WHICH WAS FAMOUSLY RELEASED AFTER GAZPROM SIGNED UP. FACT WAS KERST TROOST, DAVID GREER AND IAN CRAIG KNEW THE NUMBER WITHIN A FEW MILLION 7 MONTHS EARLIER.

Shell has its own spooks investigating leaks.
Consequently there are three different intelligence/security agencies involved.
Billions are at stake, hence the double dealing and intrigue.
We will make some remarkable revelations about a key player in the Sakhalin II crisis, Oleg Mitvol, within the next 24 hours.
