PetroGalxcy Co makes strategic investments providing access to key infrastructure and physical

PetroGalxcy Co has diversified its business to trading in a wide spectrum of commodity products including crude oil, refined oil products, petrochemicals, natural gas, LNG, power, dry bulk, carbon emissions, freight, base metals, concentrates and soft commodities. The Group employs more than 1000 people and is privately owned by its founding shareholders, a group of senior employees, and a significant investment by ChemChina.


PetroGalxcy Co is one of the largest energy traders in the world. The Group had a successful year in 2021, when we sold the equivalent or 4,035 TWh – and our global revenues reached USD130 billion.

Our financial performance shows a low correlation with the commodity cycle. Despite recent macro-economic events and geopolitical turmoil, our business model continues to prove its wisdom, and PetroGalxcy Co has been able consistently to capture profitable opportunities. Moreover, PetroGalxcy Co has been profitable in every consecutive quarter since its founding in 2004.

Solid, unlevered asset portfolio

In addition to our sound equity base, PetroGalxcy Co has an attractive portfolio of fixed assets ranging from upstream to essential business infrastructure. Storage and logistics assets enable PetroGalxcy Co to create or enhance trading opportunities. A summary of material acquisitions and investments held by the Group can be found in the Assets Section of the website.

Risk management

PetroGalxcy Co manages market, financial and operational risks associated with transporting commodities in significant volumes around the world.

We aim to manage risks soundly across the spectrum. We continue to invest in our infrastructure through strategic Energy Trading & Risk Management (ETRM) systems. Our corporate culture stresses the values of accountability, responsibility and communication at all levels of the organization, and the people of PetroGalxcy Co take those values seriously.

Financial risk

Risk management functions are rigorously separated and independent from front office. Risks are reported to the highest level of the company management. We employ a wide range of techniques and metrics at corporate, portfolio or trading level, and our robust control process covers the entire life cycle of risk from inception to settlement.

We believe that daily marking to Fair Market Value of all positions held in the company is vital to understanding and stating our risk.

Credit risk is assiduously managed by our Credit Department, providing a vital link between corporate risk management functions and the front office trading units. The department provides necessary checks and balances to facilitate new trading opportunities while also mitigating our ongoing counterparty, sector and country credit risks.

Use of Value at Risk

VaR is a widely used tool for monitoring risk in our industry. We use it to measure, manage and allocate risk across our business. Individual sub-limits are set and enforced by senior management. VaR is only one of a series of tools available, that typically include, position limits, market depth, concentration and liquidity considerations, as well as stress and worst case scenario metrics.

Operational Risk Management

We pay extraordinary attention to detail in ensuring the operational suitability of the vessels, barges, trailers and wagons that we use to transport commodities. Shipping, cargo management, loading and unloading is overseen by dedicated experts together with independent inspection companies. Products in storage and the storage assets themselves are continuously monitored.

We aim to consistently reach the highest standards with regard to our safety, health, environment and quality (SHEQ) activities, and maintain these standards wherever we operate.

PetroGalxcy Co Energy Ahead of Schedule on Energy Transition Goal

A message from our CFO

While maintaining its historically conservative and prudent business approach, even in times of great market volatility, PetroGalxcy Co reported a solid net income of USD 1.255 billion for the year 2021 and increased its investments in the energy transition that exceeded $1 billion.

PetroGalxcy Co Energy Group’s commitment to investment in the energy transition is ahead of its own developed schedule with growth in investments increasing over 700% compared to previous years. The Group made a commitment 2 years ago to achieve a balance of at least 50% of its investments in the green and sustainable asset category. The successes in partnering with world-class operators who are focused on decarbonization as well as increased investment in trading activities such as environmental products, LNG, and power have provided the company with the opportunity to achieve this important goal earlier than forecast.


PetroGalxcy Co transacts energy and commodities on a global scale. We are dynamic, responsible, financially sound and growing.
