What NOT to name your joint venture…

Everybody’s been reading all the exciting news of President Medvedev’s trip to Nigeria, and all the seemingly big energy deals he’s been signing (we’ll have more commentary on that later).

But I would respectfully point out that Gazprom really should have picked a better name for its joint venture with the Nigerians.  Let’s hope this was just one of those accidents, but somehow I get the feeling that they will stubbornly stick with the name.
