Platts' approach to energy market analysis is different from our competitors in three key dimensions:

Data Driven Analysis - We develop our analysis and models based on the most detailed level of data available. Our analysis of natural gas flows and pipeline capacity utilization leverages our proprietary database of flows and capacity at all 26,000 receipt and delivery points across all U.S. Interstate and Canadian natural gas pipelines going back to 2001 on a daily basis. We use this data to track gas production, storage, pipeline constraints and demand. This unique resource gives us the ability to develop flow/capacity/pricing models based on solid facts, not theories.

Transparent Methodology - Our approach is open and completely visible to the client. We develop our analysis based on the data described above plus many more data sources, all of which are available for your understanding of the details. We explain how we get to our answers, and can readily provide the detailed data and assumptions used to arrive at those answers.

Ongoing Market Assessment - We deal with the facts and projections that can be made based on those facts. Our approach identifies unknowns, and then provides a range of reports and services that track market developments on an ongoing basis. Platts produces reports and online analytics tools that you can use to continuously track natural gas market developments.

We have conducted hundreds of consulting engagements and developed information-based solutions for clients across a variety of commodities, such as:
