In an industry that has relished being opaque and secretive, success in the energy trading industry has historically been built upon who you know and what they know.
Since 2016 the industry’s landscape has been experiencing a fundamental shift led by data, which continues to grow at a hitherto unseen pace and scale.
Opportunity to solve the fundamental oil market information gap coincides with the proliferation of satellite data and maritime AIS, containing GPS information. Cloud computing makes this massive amount of data easier and cheaper to process.
This new data ecosystem needs to be combined with industry expertise and extraordinary data science talent.
To stay ahead of the curve, what should traders and market analysts look like in the future? And what role do technology and data science play?
We’re interested in building a community for future-minded people within the energy industry and hope you can take part.
