Just in case you missed this quote:
"Sources said this intriguing saga could take another turn if ExxonMobil closes a deal with InterOil in which case Shell could contemplate a takeover of the Canadian producer."
Although I agree with Mspieks. Doesn't make sense to wait on XOM deal because you take the obligation of the deal struck. Logic would dictate striking before a deal made if you want a takeover.
You are a paid basher that is plain and simple. Go start a conversation with yourself under another one of your multiple IDs. What a joke. Your rampant posting by all bashers gives you idiots away every time, as if we needed any clue to your intentions here. They have been known for far too long.
