Enabling the flow of the world’s energy
Our energy division enables the flow of the world’s energy. We focus on generating value for our partners at every end of the chain. Innovative synergies are created that optimize within the status quo while enabling participation in the next steps of the energy transition. Our people have a broad and deep experience with no legacy assets to restrict our swift alignment with developments.
Our emissions division was founded in 2017. It has benefited from the much-deserved attention and growth the sector has exhibited in the last few years. Through the constant monitoring of applicable rules and regulations the desk offers guidance and insights to the rest of the group on emerging trends, threats and opportunities in regions across the globe.
Emissions reduction initiatives are creating the basis for energy uses and technological applications. Emissions trading provides a unique common platform where producers and consumers across the energy spectrum interact
We have established gas-to-electricity agreements across multiple European countries. AOT Energy, our energy division, facilitates the delivery of gas to our power plant customers and offtakes electricity to cover their operational, logistical and financial requirements. Our storage capabilities in Europe and transit capacity booking options provide our customers with efficient and effective means to optimize their operations.
Additionally, our energy division engages in diverse projects with a focus on renewable electricity across solar, wind and hydroelectric generation to be at the forefront of this dominant market trend. Lastly, we are involved in electric battery storage projects to facilitate our customers' needs and trading activities.
03NATURAL GAS & LNG
Our energy division is involved in the full stream of operations for pipeline Natural Gas and Liquified Natural Gas (LNG), applying a long-term business development strategy. For Natural Gas, we grew our European and global presence through our Upstream gas business, gas storage capabilities, and by trading across pan- European gas hubs. We have established strong partnerships with producers, end-users and market participants alike. In 2020 we worked with more than 50 counterparties in 21 countries, supplying Natural Gas to industrial users, local supply companies and local municipalities.
Our proven track record in gas logistics and expertise enables us to deliver gas to our customers wherever they are in the world. With over 30 agreements on the LNG with major producers, trading houses and consumers, as well as strong relationships with ship owners, we have maintained a clean track record on our shipments delivered to the Far East and European destinations since 2018.
Our LNG business is expanding with the 2021 contracts covering both the Atlantic and the Pacific Basins. We aim to integrate our Natural Gas, LNG and power trading activities to benefit from those synergies.
The energy division is active in the entire oil supply process. Our crude oil trading secures a global footprint and provides interaction with major producers and refiners.
Moving further down the value chain, we are at the forefront of blending and supplying fuels that exceed the current green standards. Our logistics capabilities provide security and efficiency to our operations and our counterparts.
In Western Europe we have an established blending, distribution and trading network that encompasses a broad range of oil products and biofuels:
- Distillates for aviation, heating and transportation
- Wood pellets
Our Mediterranean operations evolve around a long-standing presence in Malta. We are the largest regional wholesale bunker grade supplier, while also serving the needs of utilities and refiners in distillate and fuel-based grades.
The group has successfully facilitated the transition of our clients to align with the IMO 2020 requirements and is responsive to the clear incentives provided to evolve.
Furthermore, we have a very active presence in the Canada-US crude interconnector, benefiting from a constantly evolving landscape.
