Pricelock, the most innovative platform for energy professionals to transact, network, recruit and search for jobs, today announced the launch of a new content community for energy professionals covering a wide range of topics from petroleum engineering, reservoir engineering to drilling and power generation. The service is designed to catalog energy-related questions and answers for professionals with a deep energy background. Anyone can join the dialog and contribute by asking questions, providing an answer or comment, and voting for the best answers. Topics range from detailed technical topics on engineering and drilling techniques, to tips and advice for those just entering the energy industry.
“Pricelock’s community has grown tremendously this year and we believe energy professionals can benefit greatly from each other’s insights. It is an industry that is growing globally, and faces many complex issues. Professionals providing meaningful help to each other is a core idea behind any community, and we are very excited to be that place for energy trading, drilling, engineering and generation professionals”, said Naveen Agarwal, CEO of Pricelock.
The Energy Q&A section is another way that Pricelock is helping energy professionals connect and interact with each other. It augments Pricelock’s website, where energy professionals can already network with each other, highlight the products they buy or sell, find counterparties to transact, take part in auctions, find and post jobs, and browse the latest relevant news and blog posts around energy today.
Pricelock allows energy professionals to transact energy products online, connect with other professionals based on their interest in buying and selling specific types of energy, and to recruit talent and find jobs. The platform supports transactions for all energy products and services including motor and jet fuels, physical natural gas, storage and capacity, physical power, power generation and capacity, railcar leases and coal. The largest utilities, power cooperatives, power generators, investment banks, refiners, producers, marketers, transportation, industrial and commercial firms participate on the platform. Pricelock’s mission is to provide liquidity for energy products not traded on an exchange.
