Trading is the engine of our business, and energy in many different physical forms is the resource we trade the most. In fact, almost all of our activities are driven by trading from exploration, to shipping and storage. More than simply a thread linking every aspect of what we do, trading is the conduit through which we receive and share vital market information, maintain the balance and flow of our liquidity, and forge lasting, rewarding relationships with customers all over the world. We take pride in our ability to take on difficult, complex projects and deliver effective solutions quickly and transparently. Because our partnership model is based on collective responsibility, we are careful to assess risk exposure on the ground, in the local markets where we can see the real connection between cause and effect.
