Former partner with one of the Big 4 consulting firms, I have over 30 years of experience advising the oil and gas, energy and technology companies to help create lasting value. My clients include very large integrated oil companies, downstream petroleum refiners and marketers, pipeline companies, fracking services, drilling and completions services, logistics, LNG projects, and many more. Most of my work over 3 decades has been at the intersection of a business problem and a technology solution, and since 2013, the impacts of digital technologies and the oil and gas industry.
Throughout my career, I have conducted, led or advised hundreds of project and management teams who were driving change in their companies, and am widely versed in the issues facing oil and gas. My work has included projects around the world in Canada, the US, Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, China, Korea, and the Caribbean. Digital innovation is now a global phenomenon, and is impacting many of the most intractable problems and challenges facing the sector.
Specific areas of depth include:
• Oil and gas business strategy
• Digital strategy for oil, gas, LNG, services and technologies
• Business case development for digital transformation programs
• Blockchain and its application in heavy asset industries
I teach regularly at the MBA level on energy issues, and am widely sought after as a public speaker and commentator on issues facing the industry. My events page provides an indication of the many speaking engagements, panel discussions and key note addresses that I have delivered in the recent past. I publish the #1 ranked website and podcast on digital oil and gas, and I am routinely described as a thought leader on digital topics facing the industry.
