(L to R) Tsuyoshi Kameoka Representative Director, President, Group CEO of Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K. and Takashi Tsukioka Representative Director & Chief Executive Officer of Idemitsu Kosan Co Ltd. pose for the cameras during a news conference to announce the Idemitsu company's plans to buy a 1/3 stake in Showa Shell Sekiyu from Royal Dutch Shell at the New Otani Hotel on July 30th, in Tokyo, Japan. Idemitsu Kosan is currently Japan's second biggest oil refiner with Showa Shell ranked fifth. Idemitsu Kosan will pay approximately $1.4 billion for the stake, and the deal should see it competing for the number one spot in the competitive Japanese market. Shell will retain a small stake in Show Shell and will benefit from the influx of capital. Pending approval the deal is expected to be complete in 2016. (Photo by Rodrigo Reyes Marin/AFLO)
