Good questions. There has to be more yet-to-be-discovered hidden deals or motives for all of this. Vitol began as a driving force some time ago, so is this part of a continuing, forth coming plan? Or do they really want to grab it all? Either way, the other big investors have to be in on this.
Those lurking in the shadows have to move quickly, or it will be swept from under them whil they sit on their butts. When it's over, we'll lilely see something that has been very well orchestrated.
