    " Shell (RDS.A) and Total (http://bit.ly/ontL3t) received the most operatorships among non-Norwegian firms, with four each; they received five and eight licenses, respectively."

     

    Ok, so which was it , 4 each, or 5 for Shell and 8 for Total ?

     

    Ah! I See, 4 OPERATORSHIPS each, 5 licenses for Shell, and 8 licences for Total. Sure seems like this could have been written more clearly. Perhaps I expect too much from people who write for a living...

    Pretty fuzzy explanation of the licenses, I agree.

     

    Long STO and not surprised that they were the big "winner."

    I'm a small investor, retired lawyer living in the Far East, presently visiting in the mainland, like to keep up to date with current events.
