More information can be provided on how materials from these topics, and others, can be tailored flexibly for short-courses (small groups or one-to-one) and more personalised mentoring. The mentoring option is becoming more popular as it enables experienced individuals to move rapidly up their desired learning curve in specialist areas. It is particularly suited to those with previous industry experience switching careers to new sectors in which they have limited previous exposure.  It can also be conducted by distance learning materials.

David Wood has a long-established, international reputation within the industry earned through holding high-level positions with major and independent companies in corporate, commercial, strategic and technical capacities. He has conducted detailed work on oil and gas fiscal designs, petroleum economics, acquisitions and divestments, negotiations, portfolio modelling, project and operations management, earned value, schedule and duration, budgeting and strategic planning liquefied natural gas (LNG) technologies and trading, non-conventional gas resources and their enhanced recovery techniques (shale oil, gas and gas liquids, coal bed methane and gas hydrates), gas to liquids (GTL) and pipeline gas supplies and their competition with other fuels, including a wide range of renewable energies. This work coincides with the massive industry investments made in recent years in these areas.  His reputation is underpinned by extensive publications in prestige industry journals on a wide range of topical and technical issues.

David served as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Natural Gas Science & Engineering from 2014 to 2016 and remains an editorial advisor for that journal. He has published a large body of technical (geoscience and engineering) and commercial (financial and valuation) work in peer-reviewed journals with high impact factors, and in specialist industry journals. His h-index is ~28. Details of that work (including downloads) can be found at:
