About Puma Energy

Puma Energy is a Swiss multinational mid- and downstream oil company, majority-owned by Singapore-based French company Trafigura. Its operations span around 40 countries across five continents and encompass the supply, storage, refining, distribution, and retail of a range of petroleum products.

There has never been a greater need for secure, clean, affordable energy and we are seeing a shift from large, centralised power production and distribution to smaller, modular, more diverse and digitised energy systems. Our technical expertise, market knowledge and position in the energy supply chain mean that we are able to deliver distributed power solutions, underpinned by best-in-class technology and our high health, safety and environment (HSE) standards.

Our emphasis is on delivery and we are focused on solar, battery and hybrid energy solutions for our assets in the communities in which we operate, allowing us to learn and build capability while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
