Today information was leaked to us that David Greer had resigned.
We checked with Sakhalin Energy and a Mr Jim Niven confirmed by email that this is indeed the case.
With regard to the question of whether Ed Crooks described our website as being “anti-Shell”, it turned out that he had. This was fair comment on his part and not a problem. Mr Crooks dealt with the whole Greer story in a fair and balanced way which does him great credit.
