Special Advisory Panel – Peter Webb

July 1, 2023

Peter Webb, Special Advisor 90 North Foundation

We are delighted to announce Peter (UK) has agreed to become a Special Advisor to 90 North Foundation. He now combines his work as an independent consultant on policy, strategy and advocacy on energy, finance and climate, together with being a visiting OIES-KAPSARC Research Fellow (Oxford Institute for Energy Studies/King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Center), 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 wire-line engineer, 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 the UK government’s ‘refining and importing strategy framework’.
