Get in touch with Julie

Julie has specialised in global exploration since January 2011, following 11 years at Wood Mackenzie split between the upstream consulting and research divisions. She has worked closely with clients advising on global and local industry issues, with a recent focus on exploration strategy and performance.

Julie moved to Houston from the UK in November 2000 in an upstream consulting role. She helped build the Houston consulting practice and managed a wide variety of international consulting engagements, including corporate strategies, exploration and country entry strategies, competitor analysis, gas supply and market analysis. In 2006, she moved across to research and built the Houston-based team focusing on the deepwater US Gulf of Mexico.

Prior to joining Wood Mackenzie, Julie worked in BP's upstream business for eight years in a variety of political, commercial and financial analysis roles, spanning international and domestic North Sea operations and exploration.
