US energy sources reckon the Sheikha's demands are barking

Doha - The Qatari Emir's favorite wife has been fingered in a WikiLeaks expose demanding $280m from US energy giant Exxon to featherbed a pet hobby.

Big Oil sources immediately responded by offering Sheikha Mozzad bint Nasser Al Missned their profound sympathy at her embarrassing plight.

The rapacious self-publicist had recently complained about shortfalls in her jewellery buying capacity.

These had left her seriously out-blinged by glittering stalwarts such as the Sultan of Brunei's 50-strong harem.

Now a totally innovative brainwave move has seen the Sheikha insist the US super major helps bear her appaling burden with the energy contract sweetener - as described in a letter signed by Qatar deputy prime minister Abdullah al-Attiyah.

An urgent need to finance her Sidra Medical Center hospital project was always the frontispiece of the scheme US crude sources commented today.

Mozzad has demanded a total of $1.7bn from energy companies which include AP Moller-Maersk, Total, ConocoPhillips, Occidental and Q-Chem.

A spokesperson for Chevron said today "There's one born every minute!"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
