Shell tells Putin gas project not derailed by Ukraine
Russia Today ^ | 04-18-2014 | Staff

Royal Dutch Shell’s new CEO Ben Van Beurden met with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, signaling Ukraine tension has not affected investment in Russia, and that energy contracts won't be derailed by international politics.

Chief executive Van Beurden met with the president at his residence outside of Moscow and reaffirmed the company’s commitment to develop Russia’s only liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant with Gazprom.

"We also know that this is going to be a project that will need strong support to succeed. So one of my purposes of meeting with you, Mr. President, is to also secure support for the way forward on this project," Van Beurden said.

“Now is the time to expand this lucrative project, we will need strong support to make it a success,” the oil chief said.

Putin said he was happy that Shell is continuing its work in Russia.

Business Is Business. That must have been music to President Putin’s ears.

“Business Is Business.”

The essence of rationalization of those without ethics.

Pictures didn’t take, I’ll try again.

The Richest woman in Russia is Yelena Baturina. According to Forbes, when “family/inherited wealth” is discounted, she is the richest SELF-MADE woman on the planet.

She married the former Mayor of Moscow a few years ago.

She made her money by importing computers and software with her brother starting in 1989, then investing it all over.

She now owns a very upscale Hotel Chain, a large construction company, and huge amounts of ag land that she leases.

Now, she is breeding a type of rare Russian Equestrian horse, that almost disappeared under the Soviets.

She sounds like the real deal, and would likely spit at anything Kerry might offer.
