Thomson Reuters Announces Strategic Partnership with Wood Mackenzie

Thomson Reuters has forged a strategic alliance with Wood Mackenzie a global leader in commercial intelligence for the energy, chemicals, metals and mining industry. The alliance offers Thomson Reuters customers direct access to Wood Mackenzie underlying oil supply chain fundamental data and research reports within Thomson Reuters Eikon, the company’s flagship desktop platform, and through its dedicated data feed for commodities, Thomson Reuters PointConnect. Wood Mackenzie is a Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK) business.

The joint endeavor further expands the oil insight currently available via Thomson Reuters from a number of sources, including from Reuters news teams, Thomson Reuters energy analysts, IIR Energy, API and Genscape, to give commodities professionals, such as oil analysts and traders, one of the most comprehensive views of the oil supply chain currently available.

The new information and analysis provided by Wood Mackenzie and available through Thomson Reuters will include crude oil production, crude runs, crude slates, oil product balances and stocks, oil product prices, crack spreads and refining margins. In addition to its availability through PointConnect, the data will be fully integrated into the Eikon desktop workflow as well as being accessible through Eikon’s Interactive Map in later iterations. This further adds to the real-time outage and planned maintenance alerts already in Eikon that allow oil professionals to identify and monitor oil refinery status changes and assess oil capacity and pricing.

"Access to high quality and timely, relevant data is critical to making smarter and more informed business decisions, so we are delighted to be aligning with Thomson Reuters to make our world-leading oil data available to more people via the Thomson Reuters Eikon platform," said Steve Halliday, chief executive officer, Wood Mackenzie.

“Thomson Reuters is proud to be the first third-party able to offer Wood Mackenzie’s highly regarded oil fundamentals data directly to our customers either via our desktop or via a direct feed,” said Shaun Sibley, managing director, commodities, Thomson Reuters. “With this move, we are again demonstrating the full value of Eikon as a platform for our customers as we can work with best-of-breed content providers to deliver the depth of oil data they need to help inform trading decisions.”
