LONDON & HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FGE and RBN Energy announced today the formation of a strategic alliance between the two privately-held companies that will build upon each company’s capacity to deliver end-to-end global vision and insights on world oil, natural gas, and NGL markets. Through the alliance, the companies will develop and market joint products, and provide integrated energy market analytics to their clients.
“This new alliance with RBN Energy is a solid step in our journey to provide our clients with the most insightful oil, gas, and NGL market analysis/consulting,” said Dr. Fereidun Fesharaki, Chairman of FGE. “For an accurate global view, it is critical to build analysis from the bottom up, region by region and product by product. This alliance completes the picture, adding North America to our offerings.”
“The U.S. has been exporting condensates for over a year. Crude oil export regulations are a hot topic in Washington. Propane exports are at an all-time high. And LNG exports from the Gulf Coast are only a few months away,” added Rusty Braziel, President of RBN. “This relationship fits perfectly with our business strategy of expanding our solutions for existing customers into the destination markets for the growing volumes of U.S. energy exports. Through this alliance, we will be able to leverage our service strengths, which offer increased value for our clients.”
