A poisoned chalice for Shell’s Ceri Powell

His Majesty the despotic Sultan of Brunei meeting Malcolm Brinded some years ago, perhaps to discuss corruption? Brinded is currently named in the Nigeria OPL 245 scandal. 

The sideways move of Ceri Powell from being Shell’s exploration chief to the dubious distinction of being appointed as a manager director of corruption-tainted Brunei Shell Petroleum has been blamed on company cut backs in drilling new wells.

The corruption in question, involving at least 8 members of Brunei Shell staff, explain the pleadings made by a previous Brunei Shell Petroleum director, Ken Marnoch. The fall out is current and ongoing.

All of this activity in a country ruled by the corrupt degenerate Sultan of Brunei and his equally decadent brother, Prince Jefri who have been at each others throats in an $8 billion family feud

Despite being worth an estimated $25 billion, the Sultan has been known to accept a bribe from Shell. A $500,000 (Brunei dollars) Wedding Gift.

The despot is also known for his imposition of Sharia law. Punishments include dismemberment of limbs and stoning to death.

Good luck Ceri Powell. You must have really pissed someone off.
