The Oil Exploration and Production (E&P) Commodity Management Solution - Commodity XL

Trading and Risk Management

Oil exploration is an expensive, high-risk operation. Offshore and remote area exploration is generally only undertaken by very large corporations or national governments. Typical Shallow shelf oil wells (e.g. North Sea) can cost USD$10 - 30 Million, while deep water wells can cost up to USD$100 million plus.

Hedging price risk of crude oil is a key to profitable operations. E&P companies wishing to succeed must have sophisticated energy trading and risk management (ETRM) systems in place that not only transact and capture data in real time, but that also provide critical business intelligence and analysis information to make optimal decisions around trade execution, position management, and physical logistics.
