I have been a LUKoil shareholder for fifteen years. The companys governance, accounting and performance has been excellent. Both accounting and reserve auditing are performed by U.S. firms and there are several highly respected Westerners on the companys Board. Dividends have been increased for 15 years in a row. Vagit Alekperov and his fellow owner-managers own more than 30% of the firms shares and have done a superb job managing the firm.
