Our people

Simon Molyneux Principal Geoscientist & Managing Director

Simon Molyneux

Simon is the principal geoscientist and Managing Director of Molyneux Advisors. Amalgamating over 23 years of experience acquired during his time at Santos, Talisman Energy and Shell, Simon takes pride in being at the forefront of the oil and gas industry, where he delivers maximum value to his clients and their resources.

A visionary leader who sets the trajectory of Molyneux Advisors, Simon is known for always remaining two steps ahead of the curve. As a multi-faceted business owner, he knows that his clients do not necessarily have the upstream capability that Molyneux Advisors provide, as a result his company has grown to be the vanguard within the sector.

Having walked the road of his clients, Simon is the first to understand the immense pressure they face daily. What sets him apart is his ability to identify fundamental issues within each company and provide advice rather than merely ‘consulting’.

A valuable partner to your business who believes that ‘good enough’ is never good enough, Simon is driven by a belief that each field, prospect or basin requires an integrated approach to maximise resource value. His technical understanding, paired with his relentless pursuit to achieve meaningful outcomes, has taken him to subsurface and exploration projects across the world.

Simon is an adaptable and malleable innovator who sets his vision firmly in place. He then paves the way to get there by motivating his team of top-tier consultants to stick to the path. Simon’s ability to mitigate roadblocks before an issue arises keeps the team moving at an exponential pace.
