CERAWeek: Skilling remembered

He’s in a federal prison cell in southern Minnesota, but Jeff Skilling’s place in the energy world survives.
Linda Cook, executive director of gas and power for Royal Dutch Shell, opened her luncheon speech at the CERA conference today with a memory: The last time she was on the stage at the Westin Galleria, she shared it with Skilling.
That was at a symposium in 2000 where Skilling, riding high at Enron, said the world’s oil majors were asset-heavy dinosaurs and new-economy juggernauts like Enron were the wave of energy future.
“I still have my job,” Cook said with a smile.
