Dubai-based OTI to manage its energy trading business via a centralised ETRM system
LONDON, December 10, 2015 – Oman Trading International (OTI) and Allegro Development Corporation today announced that OTI has chosen the Allegro 8 platform to manage its oil and refined products trading business. OTI Trading will use Allegro’s enterprise class software to manage its oil and refined products trading activities across the full transaction lifecycle.
Headquartered in Dubai, OTI sources, transports and markets natural resource products from around the globe. The company can locate, move, blend and deliver products always meeting the unique specifications and needs of each of its clients.
In response to rapidly changing markets and to significantly expand operations into new product areas and regions, OTI recently changed ownership to a wholly owned Omani organisation. This will allow the company to evolve into a global trading powerhouse.
“We needed a centralised ETRM system to manage our energy trading business and we selected the Allegro Platform because we found it innovative, sophisticated and adaptable to our trading and risk management needs,” said Said Al Maawali, VP Petchem and Business Development, OTI. “We strongly believe that Allegro’s technology will help us achieve better portfolio, trade lifecycle and risk management, which are ultimately our business goals,” continued Al Maawali.
Allegro will support OTI across the entire transaction workflow, including front-to-back office, operations & logistics, with the following benefits:

It further demonstrates our ability to develop and implement trading and risk management solutions that meet the needs of the global energy market and illustrates Allegro’s ability to serve the Middle East’s leading producers and traders.”
