Paul is a graduate of Harvard, and attended the Institute d'Etudes Politiques and University de Paris (Sorbonne) in Paris. After Energy Finance with a large Canadian Bank, Paul began his Alberta career as Director of Gas Pricing for key energy agency of the Alberta Government. Subsequently, he was a Canadian energy equity analyst.

In Canada, Ziff Energy pioneered analysis of Finding and Development Cost, Operating Cost, and People Productivity issues, from 1987 to current. Ziff Energy Group has grown internationally, and now has E+P clients in 10 countries and 4 continents, and has assembled the largest operations database in the world (3000 fields).
The firm also advises several dozen North American gas players regarding continental supply.

He has testified as an expert witness on natural gas issues before various regulatory boards in Canada and the United States.
