How we add value
We source raw commodities from miners, oil and gas producers and match the processing requirements of refineries, smelters and liquefaction plants. We supply end-users, including state agencies, manufacturers, utilities, power plants, energy retailers and construction companies, with the processed commodities they need.
Reliability is fundamental. We often trade with counterparties that are strategically important in their respective economies. We invest around the globe in infrastructure, storage, transportation and logistics to deliver on-spec physical commodities where and when they’re needed.
In a high-volume, low-margin business we emphasise service and operational efficiency. We enjoy significant economies of scale and access to low-cost funding. We create and supplement local infrastructure and develop multimodal logistics to streamline and simplify supply chains.
We apply consistent standards globally and operate responsibly in a wide range of political and cultural environments. Trafigura’s culture is founded on a service ethos. Individually, we expect our people to act with a high degree of personal integrity. As a Group, we strive both to meet and to develop international best practice.

Trafigura is one of the world’s largest independent oil and petroleum products traders. We buy and sell barrels and move them highly efficiently. We are continually improving logistics, service and performance. Our partners are utilities, refiners, oil majors and National Oil Companies.
Power and renewables
Trafigura’s global success is founded on our ability to evolve traditional supply chains to develop new markets. This expertise is profoundly relevant in today’s shifting energy landscape. We are building our presence and position in the fast-evolving power and renewables sector through a series of strategic, targeted engagements.
