With our activities spanning across all segments of the oil and gas value chain, our clients rely on us to deliver to their unique specifications – on time and on-spec for every transaction.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts a 30% increase in global energy needs by 2040, with demand for both crude oil and natural gas growing over this period. Much of modern industry relies on crude oil and its by-products, resulting in the continued growth in its global use, whether it be to produce petrochemicals (the building blocks of modern consumer products) or as fuel for transportation (including aviation and shipping). Natural gas demand will also grow, especially in developing economies, due to the benefits it offers compared to other fossil fuels. Although products derived from the oil and gas industry are consumed across all countries globally, there are only a few nations who are major producers of these products.
Having earned a reputation for being a trustworthy and reliable counterparty has enabled us to build long-term strategic relationships with major players (producers and end-users alike) within the industry. With our global reach, exceptional relationships and the expertise of our teams, we can provide our business partners and stakeholders with a wide range of value-added services and business solutions.
The oil and gas value chain starts with exploring and producing crude and ends with providing refined products to end consumers. OTI acts as a service provider to the value chain by buying and selling energy in its various forms to customers around the world. In addition, OTI is taking steps towards integrating its business further with the downstream sector.
