Our History

Uncovering Hidden Value

It was the early 1990s and Gil Dawson, a geophysicist, was working with Amoco Corporation as a production manager overseeing a complex offshore oil joint venture project in the North Sea. During his five-year tenure, he watched his employer build two offshore production facilities at the top of the industry’s cost cycle only to bring them on line and into production at the bottom of the revenue cycle.

Frustrated by a lack of reliable commodity price forecasting, Dawson’s search for a solution sowed the seeds for what would become a unique energy consulting firm…
