Scott has more than 30 years of experience of oil and gas operations, having previously worked for the British National Oil Company and Halliburton. He also held investment banking roles with Citigroup, Standard Bank and ABN Amro.

He was a founder of Toronto Venture Exchange-listed Exile Resources, a West African oil and gas exploration company that merged with Oando, a Nigerian oil producer.
