Re: Israel, BG Group and Gaza
Dear Mr. Burrows,
Would you please comment on BG Group’s oosition regarding the ongoing military operations by Israel against the population of Gaza, reportedly undertaken to consolidate Israeli control over Palestinian natural gas reserves.?
I understand that BG Group is in a deal to ship gas from the Leviathan field in Israel for liquification at BG’s plant in Egypt, helping to turn Israel from an energy importer to an exporter. This gives BG Group considerable leverage in Israel particularly in areas related to Israeli efforts to exploit energy resources.
As a concerned individual citizen, I would like to see BG Group, as a concerned corporate citizen, condemn the violence, and use its significant and decisive influence to intervene in this crisis, and convince Israel that gas reserves are not worth the blood of human beings.
