We are seeking a talented and driven Principal Oil Research Analyst to support and help grow our supply side oil forecasting in Boulder, CO or Houston, TX.

It is a great opportunity for an entrepreneurial and innovative person who is looking to help develop and grow an exciting product line.
About the role

You will support clients, prospects and internal customers and be the subject matter expert in petroleum research and supply forecasting. You will also help in new product development, driving creation of our regional balances and data model.
You will maintain country forecasts at the oil field and basin level, processing satellite imagery and other signals into market-relevant indicators and helping to write customer-facing reports and publications. The role will work closely with the team in data collection and data quality assessment, some of which is difficult to obtain.

- You show initiative through researching and tackling new problems with little guidance from others.
- You have the ability to learn established processes and procedures carefully, with attention to detail, while also an ability to improve and evolve current processes.
