Sure I've had 3 large analytics projects for three supermajors now (currently on the third). What questions do you have?

Most of the work I’ve done revolves around using geospatial analytics to determine potential pipeline risk. Usually grab historical pipeline data, environmental data, weather, anything else I can think of and join it to the pipeline data. Then model potential pipeline risk for failure

Yes we have worked on very major projects for the Hydrocarbon Value Chain @ large oil and gas corporations. Upstream, midstream And downstream.

So you’re doing work at Exxon?

I’m new to consulting. Spent my entire career in industry where I worked on a closely knit team. My work style is to befriend my coworkers not only because I like to work with my friends, but also so I don’t feel bad when I call them on their sh** for not pulling their weight. I am the fulcrum and counterweight combined. I now find myself being taken advantage of and am too uncomfortable to confront slackers on an 18mo project. How do I find balance?
