Financial trading means taking a position in the respective commodities without getting involved in the complex logistics of a physical delivery. These financial products are a means of securing future profits - notably for gas and coal products – and thereby securing future cash flow for the company.
Statkraft is able to offer hedging solutions for customers with exposure to oil products (e.g. fuel oil, gasoil, HEL) and coal (API #2, BAFA); these solutions can be made financial and mostly also physical. They are offered on a stand-alone basis or as part of an integrated (clean) spark or dark spread solution.
