Energy, Utilities & Chemicals

Jon Krome

Expert in Energy, Utilities & Chemicals

I take an almost paternal pride in seeing the success of my teams and am inspired to help them improve. As a Principal at Capgemini Invent, I serve the operations transformation capability line. I am particularly experienced in operations, maintenance, and the digital oilfield. Throughout my career, I have built a track record of success in innovation, increasing oil and gas production, and lowering operating costs. I possess a wealth of upstream and midstream experience, spanning over 30 years in a variety of leadership, business, and technical roles, both with operators and Big 6 consultants. My recent work has involved:

• Production surveillance, monitoring, and optimization
• Total productive maintenance, reliability, and integrity
• Program, project, and shutdown management
• Continuous improvement, total quality management, and Lean Six Sigma
• Smart operations (digital oilfield)

I have degrees in geology and petroleum engineering and have published many papers on the digital oilfield, exploring both conceptual and practical applications. I spent 12 years in a variety of engineering, business, and management roles, and nine years as a management consultant, delivering a variety of projects to multinational oil and gas companies. I held various roles over my 11-year career in the company, from Production Unit Operations Manager to UK Country Manager, and eventually Global Head of Operations, Maintenance, and Improvement. I currently reside in Houston with my wife and two puppies. In my spare time, I enjoy a nice meal paired with good wine and practicing Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
