I have had a 25-year career in midstream/downstream with direct responsibility for sales, trading, and depot operations for major oil companies. I have been directly responsible for functions that included product quality – lubricants, fuels, and specialties. I have a strong analytical background and financial acumen gained in securities trading with major high finance houses. I have first-hand experience trading and quoting for delivery of virgin fuels, blended fuels, cracked fuel oil, and intermediate fuels to industrial consumers, marine bunkers, and utility customers. I have been involved in the refined oils and lubricants value chain right from refinery to end users with regard to pricing, multi-modal logistics, and physical trading. I have consulted on cases involving rack delivery pricing disputes, feasibility studies on used oil disposal, and pricing of blended fuel oil grades for industrial and marine use. I am familiar with the pricing of recycled oil and its disposal for either blending with fuel oils or as input into recycling. I will be able to calculate damages from the standpoint of actual product delivered to the client as opposed to the contracted quality grades and standards. For other incidental damages, I will need input from the client and any quality/quantity surveyors they may have had representing them during custody transfer.
