Par Pacific Holdings Goes Live with Allegro’s CTRM


American Energy Company Implements Allegro’s CTRM Software with The Vessel Group

DALLAS & HOUSTON, Sept. 27, 2017 – Allegro Development Corp., a leading commodity trading and risk management software provider, and The Vessel Group, an energy consulting and talent sourcing firm, announced today that Houston-based Par Pacific Holdings Inc. has fully implemented Allegro’s commodity trading and risk management (CTRM) software to manage crude oil and derivatives transactions.

Last year, Par Pacific enlisted The Vessel Group’s gold-standard consulting services to evaluate the energy company’s commodity trading and risk management processes in order to improve risk mitigation and mark-to-market positioning/volumetric reporting, as well as create better positioning for optimal purchasing. In a competitive CTRM environment, The Vessel Group aided Par Pacific in choosing Allegro’s scalable, forward compatible and innovative CTRM solution.

With Allegro’s software now fully implemented through a joint collaboration with The Vessel Group, Par Pacific will have additional real-time visibility into its crude refining processes, thereby improving risk positioning. Allegro’s additional mark-to-market tools, automated pricing and daily valuation data will provide full transparency of front, middle and back offices with auditable internal controls and functions.

Frank Brienzi, CEO, Allegro:
“Par Pacific’s unique business model and continued growth projections in the North American crude and refined products market requires a scalable end-to-end solution that provides them full position visibility into their commodity trading and risk management capabilities. The implementation of Allegro’s commodity trading and risk management solutions at Par Pacific, which was completed on time and on budget, will aid in streamlining the company’s current processes while supporting future growth.”

William Pate, President and CEO, Par Pacific:
“Implementation with Allegro’s project team and The Vessel Group was extremely efficient, and I am excited to announce that we are now operating on the Allegro CTRM platform.”

Dennis Hatchett, CEO, The Vessel Group:
“Par Pacific’s growth potential is exponential, and Allegro’s CTRM software will enable them to remain agile as they continue to gain market share and acquire new commodities. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Allegro in supporting Par Pacific’s commodity trading and risk management software.”
