The Sun newspaper alleges Shell boss Jeroen van der Veer secretly met Lord Browne of BP once a year to discuss oil prices.

Under the website headline “Shell and BP in secret meetings about oil”, the Sun is publishing an article on Sunday alleging that Jeroen van der Veer, Peter Vosers predecessor as Chief Executive of Royal Dutch Shell Plc, secretly met his BP counter-part, Lord Browne, once a year to discuss oil prices.

Lord Browne subsequently resigned after becoming involved in a scandal.

Jeroen van der Veer was a participant in the cover-up of the Shell reserves fraud and the Brent Bravo scandal.

Perfectly matched pair to engage in some jiggery-pokery.

We can safely assume that the talks also covered the possibility of a Shell BP merger.
