Bio

My 27+ year career in the oil industry primarily focuses on the downstream, refining sector but I also have extensive knowledge of crude oil and its qualities and provide commercial advice for upstream production and developments. Thinking like layers of an onion, I started optimizing valves in individual process units one at a time, then all of the valves together, then across connected processes, then across the whole refinery, to multiple refineries, to understanding and forecasting global crude supply and refining systems.
