The oil companies involved in the Chad- Cameroon oilfield and pipeline project have pulled out of the planned deal. Shell International and Elf Aquitaine's departure, leaves Exxon and new partner Petronas, the Malaysian state oil company. This is again likely to delay World Bank consideration of the project.
