Nicole is a Director in Wood Mackenzie’s EMEA Gas & LNG Consulting team, bringing 15 years of knowledge in the gas and LNG industry. Her focus lies across the complete LNG value chain, including advising on market fundamentals, project development, project financing, marketing and negotiations across the full commercial agreement suite. Most recently, she has led and supported project financing and transactional work on multiple US LNG export facilities and she has also conducted numerous studies and transactions covering LNG import terminals across Europe.

Nicole joined from Mott MacDonald, where she spent 3 years advising a sub-Saharan African Government in its discussions with the Operators, enhancing its negotiating capacity through provision of understanding of the upstream gas production, the overall project economics, and the proposed LNG marketing strategy. Throughout her years of working in the sector, she has provided commercial advice to Governments, Lenders, Investors, International Financial Institutions, Traders and IOCs in Europe, Africa, and the Americas.
