In our last edition we wrote a story entitled, 'L&T corruption scandal sees 12 resignations' in which we mistakenly carried the name of Lloyd Fernandes, a former manager in the company's quality control department, who resigned on September 23 and left the company on September 30.

L&T's human resources department has subsequently confirmed to this report that Mr. Fernandes resigned of his own accord, was not asked to leave and that his decision to resign on September 23 is in no way related to the corruption allegations sweeping the company.

Petrowatch would like to take this opportunity to unreservedly apologise to Mr. Fernandes for any distress the publication of his name has caused.

Error regretted. Editor London-listed CBM-producer Great Eastern Energy has taken objection to an item published in our last edition 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 reply 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." Error regretted.
