Selected Achievements:

  • Established a gas marketing and midstream business unit from start-up that enabled a top Canadian gas producer (AEC, now Encana) to thrive under an increasingly competitive and low price environment following the de-regulation of Canada’s gas industry. This involved forging a path that was unprecedented and markedly different from that implemented by other Canadian E&P companies. Among other things, the AECO hub and gas storage facility (first producer owned gas storage asset in Canada) were fruits of this very successful initiative (divested for US$1.5 billion in 2006);
  • Recruited by Enron Capital & Trade to establish and lead their start-up operations in Canada. This venture became one of the most profitable business units for Enron and its operations and services revolutionised gas marketing and trading activity across Canada;
  • Recruited by BHP Billiton to Australia from Canada to manage risks and opportunities associated with Australia wide micro-economic reform changes as they pertained to the gas industry where BHP Billiton was at that time the largest gas producer and the largest gas consumer in Australia;
  • Led start-up energy commodity trading desks in Alberta and Nova Scotia, Canada and re-structured wholesale gas marketing and gas procurement teams and strategies in Eastern Australia to exploit opportunities derived from gas industry restructuring by the national economic reform initiatives of the mid 1990′s;
  • 15+ years of experience monetising unconventional gas resources (tight gas in Canada and CSG or CBM in Eastern Australia) while delivering superior profit margins to the owners;
  • Pioneered the construction of the first two private sector inter-state gas pipelines in Australia (Eastern Gas Pipeline & the SEAGas Pipeline), thereby forming an interconnected multi-state gas pipeline grid in Australia;
  • Materially accelerated the gas production rates from Bass Strait in the 1990′s;
  • Chief Gas Advisor to the Queensland Treasury department regarding the commercialisation and state merits of the proposed A$6 billion Papua New Guinea to Australia gas pipeline and gas fired power generation project;
  • Commercial advisor to numerous midstream and upstream acquisitions efforts on behalf of various clients – many resulting in the winning bid. Specialist in discovering unlocked value that enables a winning bid without compromising asset returns;
  • Co-founder of Moneta Energy Services Ltd., a gas storage and trading company based in Calgary, Canada with BNP Parabas and Yorktown Energy Partners as major shareholders and of Sydney based Tellus Holdings (underground salt cavern development company);
  • Developed and implemented numerous innovative and winning strategies regarding asset optimization across the value chain in the electricity and natural gas industries of North America and Australia;
  • Created and led many high performance multi-disciplinary teams;
  • Managing Director and founder of a consulting company that has supplied advisory services to large corporations, governments and industry organisations operating in North America and Australia since the mid-1990′s.
