I specialise in the following topics: oil and gas exploration and production together with power generation, including renewables and nuclear.
Much of my energy writing is concerned with trends in policies, risks, exploration and production technologies as well as trading in energy resources. This includes, for instance in the gas sector, all aspects of current market policy, political and technological trends and developments that may affect the exploration, production and trading in natural gas, shale gas, CSG and LNG.
In addition, I often have to examine and analyse shifts in the terms of trade between coal, gas and oil as they are affected by structural market changes or opportunities and policy developments. For instance, there is the move towards deeper waters for offshore oil and gas production which is turning countries like Brazil and Angola into energy giants.
A unique contribution of my writing is to provide a geopolitical insight into the emerging energy challenges that face investors, consumers and decision makers. My main asset is my ability to turn clients’ complex and technical and financial stories into compelling narratives. My writing provides a gateway for investors and decision makers to comprehend the often complex issues that face the energy sector in a given part of the world, for example, the recent developments in Kazakhstan.
I regularly investigate emerging market demand and supply and how different solutions are being applied to common problems such as, adoption of environmental regulations and laws by Arctic nations’ following Norway’s lead in exploiting the Arctic Ocean oil and gas resources sustainably. I am well versed in researching, analysing, and sourcing my publications from a broad range of international, national, local and online business press and corporate clients. I am available for both short pieces of 750 to 1000 words and long pieces up to 5,000.
In addition, I have undertaken technology reviews and assessments. Most recently , I have supplied analysis about the viability of Russian government innovation policies for Engineering and Technology Magazine, a survey and assessment of exploration technologies for Petroleum Review and an investigation of Australian clean coal carbon capture technology for Power Engineering International.
