Matt Simmons

(April 7, 1943 – August 8, 2010)

Matt was a man not afraid to speak his mind, even when it did not gel with the view of many of his traditional clients. He was the first to point to the lack of transparency of Saudi and other oil reserves in the hands of national oil companies.

Recently, Matt was outspoken on the BP oil disaster. He pointed to the strong possibility of several leaks, not just the one BP showed in the videos. He predicted BP may eventually have to declare bankruptcy from the spill aftereffects.
