In addition, we host high-profile industry events to announce our rankings of the Top 250 Energy Companies and the winners of the Platts Global Energy Awards, which is considered the “Oscars” of the energy industry, and the Platts Global Metals Awards.

In addition, Platts serves customers through two business lines that operate under their own well-established brand names: The Steel Index (TSI), a price information specialist which compiles indexes through the collection of transaction data from industry participants, and Bentek Energy®, a specialist in natural gas, NGLs, crude oil, and LNG fundamental market data analysis.
