PIRA's core offerings are the Retainer Services, which cover a range of commodities and sectors: international oil, natural gas in North America and Europe (and LNG), NGLs, coal, biofuels, electric power in North America and Europe, and related environmental markets (including greenhouse gases). PIRA has recently expanded into agricultural commodities analysis as well.
Through a retainer, which over the course of a year provides a set of "deliverables" via email and online as well as over the phone and in person, clients achieve the best possible value for their fee. They are kept constantly up to speed on recent developments and trends in the market and are kept abreast of PIRA's latest forecasts, short and long term.
Clients can combine different retainers to create a custom retainer package, and PIRA's licensing options allow them to distribute data and analysis across a desired number of company sites for access by many users. Retainer clients also enjoy discounts on PIRA's add-on services, multi-client studies and "PIRA University" training seminars.
