Analyzing Credit Risk in the US Energy Industry
The global energy industry has explored many options to meet the growing energy needs of industrialized economies wherein production demands are to be met with supply of power from varied energy resources worldwide. There has been a clearer realization of the finite nature of oil resources and the ever higher pushing demand for energy. The world has yet to stabilize on the complex geopolitical undercurrents which influence the oil and gas production as well as supply strategies globally.

Energy trading takes place primarily in the OTC markets that inherently have counterparty credit risk. The collapse of Enron, volatile energy prices, defaults on performance and a spate of continuous credit downgrades of energy trading companies have resulted in substantial reduction of counterparty confidence in the US energy trading industry. Managing credit risk has now become an important factor in the US Energy Industry.

Aruvian's R'search’s report – Analyzing Credit Risk in the US Energy Industry - analyzes how to manage credit risk in the US Energy Industry and the CNRA initiative. The report also takes a look at the global energy industry and the US energy industry.
