About Nick

Nick is a Managing Partner of Arthur D. Little in the United Kingdom, and a member of the Arthur D. Little Board of Directors.

Most of his career has been in consulting with energy-company clients, after an early career in the UK Department of Energy, working on economic issues in the North Sea oil and gas sector. He has been with Arthur D. Little since 1984, apart from a five-year period working as a consultant in another firm.

Nick has over 35 years’ experience in the upstream oil and gas industry and the European gas and power industries. He is heavily involved in dispute resolution work relating to gas-price review arbitrations, building on his experience with the negotiation of fiscal terms and GSAs, as well as studies of the market value of gas in various European markets and prefeasibility studies of new gas infrastructure such as pipelines, LNG projects & power plants.

Other than his client work, Nick’s main responsibilities are growing Arthur D. Little’s business in the United Kingdom.

Radical Change for European Power Utilities
Matthias von Bechtolsheim, Nick White
The extensive disruption caused by the large-scale development of renewable power generation capacity in Europe continues to change the industry. For European power utilities the question is how they can react to these changes. In this piece the authors update a previous Prism article, examining specific sector trends in detail in order to identify future opportunities for utilities to respond to the fundamental changes currently underway.
Managing Well Integrity
Nick White
Successful well integrity management is a critical and evolving theme across the oil and gas industry. The Macondo incident, the Elgin field leaks and other, less prominently reported incidents demonstrate that even sophisticated energy companies are not able to “get it right” all the time.
UK Energy Policy
Nick White
The UK is facing major energy challenges. Aging infrastructure, greater reliance on gas imports and tighter controls on emissions, mean that the landscape is changing. Investment is required on a huge scale in order to maintain security of supply and affordability to consumers, while at the same time reacting to environmental goals.
