Platts is a leading global provider of energy, petrochemicals, metals and agriculture information, and a premier source of benchmark price assessments for those commodity markets.
In 2011 Platts acquired Bentek Energy. Bentek was a recognized leader in natural gas, oil and NGL market fundamental analysis with expertise in power, demand and other energy segments. We collect and organize data from all of these markets from thousands of sources worldwide, and then transform the data into actionable intelligence and key market insights. Bentek provided a full range of products including daily market reports,online applications, comprehensive studies, consulting engagements and retainer services.
By combining the skills and experience of Bentek with Platts, we can now provide a deeper level of market data, news, and analysis to customers on a regional and global basis.
Our approach to energy market analysis is differentiated in three key dimensions:
A business of McGraw Hill since 1953, Platts shares its parent company’s long-standing tradition of journalistic independence and integrity, and its steadfast commitment to providing the markets with the highest quality, timely and insightful information.
Platts has a long history in covering the global gas and power markets. It has steadily built on its reputation for providing respected price assessments, news, market commentary, and analysis.
As part of Platts’ ongoing commitment to provide the gas and power markets with the most relevant information possible, it has made a number of acquisitions to deepen coverage. This includes Bentek Energy in 2011.
Bentek was founded in 1985, primarily to provide consulting services to the energy industry. Bentek provided analytics and information services to a blue-chip customer base and is widely recognized as the industry leader in North American natural gas market fundamental analysis.
By combining the skills and experience of these companies, Platts provides a deeper level of market data, news, and analysis to customers on a regional and global basis.
