Matthew Chadwick, Vice President Americas Downstream Consulting

Matthew leads our Downstream Consulting Practice in the Americas. His expertise lies in analysing strategic and commercial opportunities for refiners and related businesses.

Having lived and worked in Europe, Singapore and the US, he blends more than 15 years’ experience in diverse regional operating environments with global market expertise.

Matthew has helped clients answer critical questions in all areas of the oil value chain, from crude production through refining and petrochemicals. He has led numerous high-profile projects providing commercial and strategic advice; transaction and finance support; and oil trade and resource monetisation analysis.

National oil companies, independent refiners, investment banks, private equity companies, upstream producers, and midstream operators have all sought his advice to help evaluate the best decision for their business.

Before joining Wood Mackenzie, Matthew worked for ExxonMobil. This experience affords him deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by operators of major energy installations.
