Adding Value to your ETRM IT Investment



Seminel provides consultancy and IT products to companies in the Energy market, focusing on the key area of Energy Trading & Risk Management (ETRM).

‘Seminel has over several years provided valuable expertise in helping us define our requirements and evaluate and develop solutions in Trading and Risk to deliver value to StatoilHydro’

Hans Birger Thomseth, StatoilHydro


Seminel undertakes ETRM package evaluations for participants in Energy Trading – from major Oil & Gas companies to Power & Gas Utilities.

With a breadth of knowledge and experience of the ETRM software landscape in both implementing ETRM packages and previous selections, we assist companies in selecting the ETRM package that best fits their current and future business needs.

We have experience of evaluating products from many vendors including Allegro, Murex, OilSpace, OpenLink, Sakonnet, SunGard, TradeCapture, TriplePoint and Ventyx.


Additionally, we reinforce this knowledge through undertaking sponsored market research in the ETRM space. If you would like to participate in our latest risk management survey, please click here.

We also gain knowledge through investing time in evaluating new entrants in the real-time Risk Management space.


With experience of project management, systems integration as well as business consulting in ETRM implementations, we offer an in-depth understanding of both the business and IT issues that are necessary to overcome to deliver systems that meets the users' expectations.

Here we can leverage prior experience gained from implementing established packages, as well as the insight gained from evaluating them, as detailed above.


We have also expertise in designing and developing bespoke software to complement and enhance a client’s existing environment as well as creating our own products.  

For example, we have developed software in the areas of Confirmations, Risk Management, Performance Reporting as well as Financial Control.


ETRM package implementations have very often yielded disappointing results for the users. We help companies build a blueprint, plan and budget to enable users across the front, middle and back office to have IT systems that meet their needs at the same time as fulfilling management requirements.
