CORRECTION

Lloyd Fernandes, one of ten L&T executives named in the story, 'L&T corruption scandal sees 12 resignations' in the October 8 edition of Petrowatch, has contacted Petrowatch to complain about his inclusion in the list.

Mr. Fernandes tells Petrowatch he was not asked by L&T to resign and that his name has been mistakenly included in the list, circulating among former and current L&T employees.

Mr. Fernandes, a former manager in the quality control department of L&T, says he left L&T of his own accord after receiving a better job offer elsewhere and that the timing of his departure with the events sweeping through L&T is pure coincidence.

In the interests of fair-play, Petrowatch has removed the list of 10 names from our site pending an official confirmation from L&T. Editor London-listed CBM-producer Great Eastern Energy has taken objection to an item published October 8, 2015 entitled, 'Greka argues with Essar over LiFaBric costs' in which we report that Greka is in "advanced" talks with Great Eastern for two rigs to drill 50 wells at the Raniganj (South) block.

In an e-mail to this report Great Eastern stresses that, "Greka had contacted Great Eastern Energy Corporation Ltd but Great Eastern Energy Corporation Ltd has refused them and is not in discussion with Greka for any drilling."
