Visiting Research Fellow
Peter Webb is a visiting research fellow, currently working on carbon markets and sequestration. He has almost three decades of experience working across both the traditional (oil and gas, refining, oil products marketing) and new energies (low carbon energy solutions) supply chains. He worked first with Schlumberger (now SLB) as a downhole wireline engineer who led on drill-pipe conveyed wireline logging in short radius wells. And then with Shell International in mostly Downstream finance and commercial roles, before moving into government relations, policy and advocacy and the area of climate finance from the real economy perspective. In that capacity he joined a team collaborating with the China Government DRC looking at future energy systems for China and led the international work for two chapters: the first on international governance, the second on financing infrastructure. Peter also worked for two years in the UK Government Department DESNZ (then known as DECC, the Department of Energy and Climate Change) building the evidence base for an HMG refining and importing strategy framework.
