More scrutiny for Shell auditors
Shell's auditors, PricewaterhouseCoopers and KPMG, have come under increased scrutiny over the oil reserves fiasco at the energy giant, claims the Times.
The newspaper reports that internal reports critical of the group’s reserves bookings were allegedly sent to external auditors by Anton Barendregt, a former reserves auditor.
He is understood to claim that PwC and KPMG were warned by Shell’s reserves auditor in 2002 that reporting of reserves was questionable.
Both firms declined to comment on the story.
