NGL & Olefins Market Analyst (13141)

Requisition Number 13141 - Posted 12/18/2011 - Tulsa, OK
   
 

Purpose of Position:

 

The NGL & Olefins Market Analyst role will be responsible for developing a detailed market viewpoint for each of the NGL & Olefins products, and then using that knowledge to improve our team's ability to make timely and quality business decisions.  The role has short-term responsibilities to provide market intelligence and analysis to our marketing team to improve their deal making ability by being better informed.  In addition, there are long-term responsibilities to support the development of our long-term strategies and to improve our investment decisions. 

 

Responsibilities:

 

-Industry Point of View (POV) Development/Maintenance: This role would develop and maintain a Point of View (POV) for the 8 critical products in the Williams Midstream commodity portfolio: Y-Grade, Ethane, Propane, Isobutane, Normal Butane, Natural Gasoline, Ethylene and Propylene.  The POV would include supply/demand balances around the US Fractionation Capacity (Y-Grade vs. NGLs) and the Olefins Capacity (Ethane vs. Ethylene and Propane vs. Propylene) that would maintained by region and be customized using outside consultant information and Williams internal knowledge.  This role would be the consolidation point for market intelligence about prospective expansions announcements from the industry and would quantify the impact of potential expansions upon Williams market positions.

-Marketing Decision Support:  This role would provide economic modeling support for individual deal evaluation, both prompt physical and forward financial transactions.  The analytical support would include competitive analysis and economic evaluation.  This role would develop analytics to quickly evaluate hedging alternatives for our WPZ hedging program and provide updated position reports on a regular basis.  Any quantitative analysis required for strategies required by the Risk Committee would be developed by this role.

-Project Development/Strategy Development:  One major application for the ongoing POV development would be to support capital investments.  This role would not be responsible for developing project economics, but would provide the market analysis to quantify the industry impact of a potential project and justify the strategic intent of the project.  This would require customization of the established POVs to evalute multiple scenarios around specific regions and products.  In addition, this role would provide quantitative support for "blue sky" evaluation of potential projects and be actively involved in the up-front development of strategic plans for our business lines.

-Market Intelligence Coordination:  This role would aggregate information from our multiple consulting services, supplement that with Williams internal market intelligence, and then "push" critical market information into the Marketing team.  This activity would require extensive use of Salesforce.com to disseminate relevant market information by opportunity or product line.  This role would also perform research projects on the impact of external events, competitor analyses, or other specific, focused market studies, as requested by managment.  These detailed studies may be partially or fully outsourced to outside consultants, and subsequently managed by this role.

 

Qualifications:

 

-At least 2 to 5 years experience in the Midstream and/or Olefins industry

-Experience in a financial analyst role, a marketing role, an economics role, or other business support role

-6-8 years of related experience
