Julie Wilson has worked at Wood Mackenzie for 18 years in various roles in both the upstream consulting and research divisions. She has worked closely with clients advising on global and local industry issues, with a recent focus on exploration strategy and performance.

Wilson has covered global conventional exploration since 2011, analyzing the business of exploration. The exploration team assesses how well the global industry and individual companies are performing in finding hydrocarbons and bringing them to market, with a focus on value creation. Additionally, the team assesses the yet-to-find volume and value potential of key basins, and Julie’s area of interest is the Americas.

In 2006, she moved across to the research division and built the Houston-based team focusing on the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
