Sylvain Santamarta leads Boston Consulting Group’s Center for Digital in Oil & Gas and is a member of BCG’s Energy practice leadership team.

Since joining BCG in 2008, Sylvain has worked with clients throughout the energy sector, across the full value chain. He has extensive experience working with national, international, and independent oil companies on a wide range of strategic and operational issues.

Sylvain has most recently led several digital transformations for clients seeking to reinvent their core operations (drilling, exploration, production operations) and to build new business models (chemicals, B2B oil products, renewables power) leveraging data and new technologies. He also advises large energy players on their decarbonization journey starting from their own footprint and envisaging their businesses of tomorrow.

Before joining BCG, Sylvain worked for Shell International and held several roles in exploration and production and in corporate finance. He is a mechanical engineer by training, in addition to holding an MBA.
