Waterborne Commodity Intelligence
Voyage records are never simply populated from tanker tracker data feeds with automated calculations. Instead, IHS LNG experts with deep knowledge of the market and access to proprietary information sources vet every single voyage record. Inaccuracies common to tanker tracker-sourced data are corrected, and commercial detail on the voyage is added. All aggregated LNG data provided to clients have been bottom-up calculated from these voyage-specific data records, and the underlying voyage information is always available for inspection.
Ground Intelligence Collection
For decades, our LNG analysts have maintained relationships with market participants throughout the industry: traders, producers, buyers, port authorities, and brokers. Via this proprietary network, IHS analysts obtain detailed market intelligence that is unavailable anywhere else. This unique vessel-level commercial detail is provided directly to clients via searchable voyage records. It is often critical to understanding hidden or emerging trends in the data, which our experts also present for clients in time-sensitive analytical reports.
Unparalleled Accuracy and Detail
Our unique vetting of all information and ground intelligence collection make us the most accurate provider of waterborne commodity intelligence in the marketplace. For LNG, we are the only data provider confident enough to publically compare head-to-head statistics with GIIGNL (The International Group of Liquefied Natural Gas Importers). Regular comparisons of our continuously provided LNG data with GIIGNL's annually reported numbers consistently show a variance of less than 1%. For LPG data, we are the only provider able to provide the actual breakdown of which tanks on an LPG vessel contain C3, C4, or iC4, in addition to commercial details of that shipment.
