Shell Gas Leak

Yesterday lunchtime, I got a whiff of what I now know to be the Shell takeover of BG Group. 

The information was unclear and my Shell related source made it plain that it was a rumour emanating from a third party, but one with “good ears” and miscellaneous contacts. 

The main thrust of the rumour was of a pending deal involving Shell and gas.

I should have connected the dots.

The information was leaked simultaneously to me and a journalist at a national newspaper. 

Last time I received a tip on the basis of it being a rumour, it turned out to be groundless, hence my decision to wait and see if any more solid information emerged from insider sources.

Instead, the main stream news outlets broke the story.
