Nexant Expands Global Gas Sector Servicesadmin
Nexant announced today that three gas industry experts—Mike Fulwood, Brian Little, and John Conway—have joined the company’s global gas practice. The three are former principals and founders of Energy Markets Partners LLP, a U.K.-based energy consultancy specializing in natural gas markets. Additionally, Nexant has also acquired a unique proprietary natural gas model that was developed by Energy Markets and used on numerous successful assignments.
Mike Fulwood has almost thirty years of experience in the energy industry, including more than ten years in consultancy. As a director of British Gas Transco—the gas transportation business unit of British Gas—his primary responsibility involved presenting Transco’s revised price control regime to U.K. regulatory authorities. Previously, as President of British Gas Americas, he led a high-calibre team responsible for developing projects in North and South America.
Brian Little has over twenty years of experience with British Gas and more than ten years in consultancy. His range of expertise includes detailed knowledge of the economics of gas and electricity markets, regulation, supply contracting and trading, and forecasting benchmarking. He led the development of the European gas model that has been used to support consulting work for key players in the global gas industry.
John Conway’s gas industry experience spans more than thirty-five years, including over ten years in consultancy. He held a number of sales and marketing management positions within British Gas, and has directed and participated in gas business organisational, operational, and marketing assessments on behalf of clients seeking to acquire and restructure gas businesses.
“Mike, Brian and John will strengthen our global gas expertise and gas market modelling capabilities and will greatly contribute to the expansion of our gas consulting and product offerings,” said Dr. Mostefa Ouki, head of Nexant’s global gas practice.
“With the significant transformations that are taking place in gas markets around the world and the business opportunities that are resulting from these changes, all of the partners in Energy Markets saw the opportunity to join Nexant as a key strategic move,” Fulwood said.
“With the expansion of our global gas practice and the addition of a new upstream integrated operations practice, Nexant’s Energy Resources business unit is now providing a comprehensive range of services and products to clients worldwide,” said Don Bari, Senior Vice President, Energy Resources. “These new initiatives are helping to strengthen Nexant’s position as a leading industry advisory service provider as well as fuelling significant growth in our energy-related business.”
