Thomson Reuters Eikon to offer unique combination of IIR Energy, Genscape and Thomson Reuters editorial oil refinery data to give commodities professionals complete view of the oil supply chain

LONDON, NEW YORK – Thomson Reuters today announced the addition of IIR Energy planned maintenance data for oil refineries to Thomson Reuters Eikon. The addition of IIR Energy data further expands the oil insight currently available to commodities professionals in Eikon, building upon real-time oil refinery outage data from Genscape and Thomson Reuters editorial coverage of refinery outages.

Oil refinery capacity is shifting today from smaller refineries in the West to larger refineries in the Middle East and Asia, transforming the structure of global oil hubs. With the shifts seen today in the global oil markets, it is increasingly important for oil professionals to have access to actionable oil supply chain intelligence.

Real-time outage and planned maintenance alerting is now available on Thomson Reuters Interactive Map in Eikon, allowing oil professionals to identify and monitor oil refinery status changes as they happen on an intuitive map of the world. The depth of IIR Energy scheduled maintenance data for over 600 global refineries coupled with the speed of real-time refinery status updates from Genscape provides commodities professionals with the tools they need to assess oil capacity and pricing.

“The unique combination of Genscape and IIR Energy content now available in Eikon, alongside coverage from our editorial team, provides commodities professionals with the speed and depth of oil refinery content they need to make better informed trading decisions,” said Shaun Sibley, head of commodities and energy, Thomson Reuters. “With the addition of IIR Energy data to Eikon, we are again demonstrating commitment to bringing key data, analytics and insight to our customers and creating the most comprehensive, one-stop desktop for the commodities markets.”
