INEOS’ face to the international oil, petrochemical and energy commodity markets is INEOS Trading & Shipping. It places great emphasis on value delivery through an integrated trading and risk management business. Operating from one of INEOS’ twin head offices in London, the key focus is on supporting the wider INEOS group through identifying and developing solutions which help to manage physical and financial risk and optimise opportunities. INEOS Trading & Shipping manages the procurement of approximately 10 million tonnes of petrochemical feedstocks per annum. In order to accomplish this, it has created a centre of shipping excellence as well as placing great emphasis on the compliance and risk management requirements of conducting business in these markets. This extends to energy where INEOS Trading & Shipping is active in the natural gas market where it markets and trades for the INEOS Oil & Gas business, which is a top 10 producer in the North Sea. The business further manages the exposure of other INEOS businesses in the power and emissions markets.
