The cable concerned the oil industry in that country, and specifically referred to discussions with Ann Pickard of Shell, the dominant player in the Nigerian oil industry. Pickard, then Shell's vice-president for sub-Saharan Africa, where she 'sought to share intelligence with the US government on militant activity and business competition in the contested Niger Delta'. Shell was attempting to retain their wide-scale control of natural resources in the face of potential competition from Russia and China. The ambassador further reported that Pickard 'said the GON [Government Of Nigeria] had forgotten that Shell had seconded people to all the relevant ministries and that Shell consequently had access to everything that was being done in those ministries'.

Ms Pickard's appointment as chairman of Shell Australia, replacing Russell Caplan who is retiring after 42 years with Shell, is another coup for Perth at the same time as further weakening Melbourne's once-proud title as the capital of the country's resource sector.
Mrs Pickard (pictured below) arrived in Perth three months ago to take up the reins as head of Shell's Australian upstream business and with a self-proclaimed mandate to change Shell's upstream status from non-operator to that of an operator.

June 4 (Bloomberg) - Royal Dutch Shell Plc, Europe's largest oil company by market value, said Ann Pickard will succeed Russell Caplan as chairman of its Australian operations on Aug. 1.
Pickard will also continue to be executive vice president for oil and gas exploration and production in the country, Shell said.
Shell Australia's business includes two refineries, the Prelude floating liquefied natural gas project, a stake in the Chevron Corp.-led Gorgon LNG venture, and a proposed coal-seam gas to LNG plant in Queensland state. Perth-based Pickard, 54, took up her Australian role in March following her role as Shell's regional executive vice president for Africa.
Australia is "the biggest growth area we've got," Pickard said last month. She was previously based in Lagos, Nigeria, for about four years.
