We have extensive expertise in the monetisation of flexible gas, LNG and power assets, including contracting, hedging and optimisation strategies. We particularly specialise in commercial analytics solutions to support the management of asset and portfolio value. Our clients include investors, asset managers and energy supply & trading functions.
Our team has strong practical experience of the monetisation of flexible assets, gained from senior commercial and analytical roles within the industry. We work with clients to develop contracting, hedging and optimisation strategies and understand their impact on asset and portfolio risk/return.
We have particularly strong expertise in the design, development and implementation of commercials analytics solutions. We work with clients to deliver solutions that enhance value extraction by providing greater transparency on asset value, risk/return dynamics, hedging impact and performance measurement.
Timera Energy has a sophisticated in-house commercial analytics capability that supports our delivery of solutions to clients. This covers the management of individual asset value (e.g. power plant or gas swing/storage hedging & optimisation). It also covers the management of portfolio value (e.g. the hedging & optimisation of LNG portfolio flexibility). Our analytical capability spans an asset lifetime horizon, from the prompt hedging & optimisation of assets in spot and forward markets to long term contracting and exposure management.
