The Importance of Digital Transformation

In a volatile fuel market, having tools that give you greater visibility and predictability can be a game changer.

  • As oil and gas companies undergo a digital transformation, they will begin to see reduced operational expenses and fewer risks
  • 80% of enterprise workloads are expected to be in the cloud by 2025

Fluctuating Fuel Demand

Fuel prices are extremely volatile and often mirror the highs and lows of the global economy.

  • Airline fuel consumption increased 2.6% from 2019 to 2020
  • Global petroleum and liquid fuel consumption in the first
    quarter of 2020 is 0.9 million barrels per day less than the
    first quarter of 2019
  • 2020 is the first year we expect to see decreased global
    oil demand since 2009
  • As of March 2020 oil prices have decreased by 45% due
    to limited demand

When fuel demand plummets, optimally priced fuel can still keep you competitive.
