Since 1976 Simon has worked as a Petroleum Engineer and Engineering Manager for Shell International Petroleum and Atlantis, and has worked in consultancy as Managing Director of the original ERC Resource Consultants in the late 1980s and 1990s, as well as the restart of ERC in 2003.
Simon has been exposed to virtually all reservoir types within Europe, Africa and Asia. He is able to draw upon his experience as a manager in both E&P and consulting companies to identify both causes of concern and solutions to unique and demanding challenges. Field experience from international assignments in Europe and the Arabian Gulf while with Shell, and in the UAE, Oman and Tunisia while with Atlantis gives him a practical view of petroleum operations. His experience enables him to bridge the gap between technical and commercial considerations and he has worked extensively for clients as their reporting engineer to banking syndicates, during external financing processes.
