ABOUT THE COMPANY
Its primary products are liquids digital commerce and gas asset analytics cloud-based platforms. In addition, Arbo offers focused advisory services, API data access, and a variety of data products under the ArboIQ line of business.
Arbo can be interpreted as short for “arb open” or arbitrage opportunity — variations of the common reference, “open arb,” used in the industry to refer to the pursuit of arbitrage profits or cost savings by capitalizing on price differentials between commodity hubs.
But, the Arbo name was not selected for a literal or functional interpretation. When associated with product benefits and people, the name should evoke progress applying modern data technology to help a traditional industry transform its business practices.
Arbo also represents a commitment to innovate for the next generation workforce that we know takes pride in providing the energy that fuels lives and economies around the world.
Arbo envisions modernizing energy commerce and its business interconnections with infrastructure.
We pursue this vision by developing technology that drives more efficient workflow and business practices, builds a collaborative commerce ecosystem, and facilitates transactions between counterparties in the physical markets — all of which will lead to more marketplace access and transparency and better utilization of current and future infrastructure.
To develop a digital platform that automates and integrates energy marketing, so the next generation workforce can do business better and connect consumers to cleaner energy sources.
