Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Platts decides to launch new daily hydrogen market report, 25 Aug
Commodity: Energy Transition, Petrochemicals
Region: Global
Subscriber note type: Methodology Note

Platts, part of S&P Global Commodity Insights, has decided to launch Nov. 14 a dedicated daily market report for hydrogen.

The report will be called Platts Hydrogen Market Report and will feature existing and new hydrogen pricing along with relevant ammonia prices. It will also include summary of the topical hydrogen news of the day along with a commentary of the global hydrogen market. This will provide analysis of market fundamentals, trends and discuss the factors driving prices, thereby bringing better access to the market and greater transparency.

Note also, since 1 Aug Platts has systematically excluded volumes and pricing of "Russian-origin" materials, products, flagged vessels from European markets' indices. Prefatory explanation to subscriber notices includes "feedback from market participants and recent observed changes in trading practices", "Russian material does not constitute a typical flow and significant portion of supply", "not trading on the same basis as product from other origins". Similarly, S&P is discontinuing and re-classifying CFR Taiwan/China/Asia/Open oil and gas grades and petrochem commodity trading symbols. So. "Better access to the market and greater transparency" is actually degrading along geopolitical division of international "rules-based" order.
