Downstream Oil Market Analyst
 
Amanda Fairfax

I am a senior Downstream Oil Market Analyst at Genscape, specializing in crude and products demand, refinery operations, and all aspects of the oil supply chain. Driven by a passion for energy economics and more than a decade of experience in the geosciences, I deliver timely and reliable oil intelligence data to our clients. In my first five years at Genscape, I analyzed real-time, unit-level refinery operations and alerted our customers to unit status changes such as startups, shutdowns, and flaring. I studied individual refineries’ infrastructure and unit configurations to expand our real-time monitoring network to more than 88 facilities in North America, covering 89% of total refining capacity in the U.S., and 44 facilities at key locations across Europe. I worked closely with our software engineers to develop sophisticated tools our analysts use to interpret such a large volume of remote sensing data and launched a monthly Turnaround schedule as a supplementary report for clients of our North America Refinery Intelligence service. I currently support the real-time refined products side of our business, using volumetric and pricing data for transactions at the rack level to evaluate Gasoline and Distillate demand in the United States, allowing our clients to identify market opportunities and trends.

In both my Refinery Analyst and Downstream Oil Market Analyst roles, I recognize the value accurate, timely data and short-term insights have for our clients to make decisions and solve problems. I leverage my skills as a GIS mapping professional to spatially represent Genscape’s data capabilities and provide context as to how this data relates to other aspects to the supply chain and global balance. I continuously support the growth of Genscape’s unique monitoring network to develop valuable solutions and products to inform market participants and industry professionals around the world.

I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Louisville with a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Geography and Geosciences and a minor in Economics.
