HPL Global Pte Ltd
Gravitas has surpassed our expectations and elevated our organization’s competencies in many aspects including workflow design, analytics, cost budgeting, and production margin hedging. Our commercial practices including legal contracting and cargo operations have been strengthened.
I have known and done business with Mr Lim Fang Wei since 2007 when my company Haldia Petrochemicals Ltd (HPL) supplied oil and petrochemical products to BP where he had then worked.
Over the past 13 years interacting with him professionally, I have grown to admire his business acumen, innovativeness and integrity in the industry covering all aspects of trading, risk management, operations and finance. His reputation in the global markets is stellar, evidenced by every industry player I have come in direct contact with.
In September 2019, HPL’s wholly-owned subsidiary HPL Global Pte Ltd (HPLG) retained Gravitas Energy Resources (GER) as their consultant. Mr Lim is GER’s founder and was appointed as the Strategic Advisor to HPLG. GER’s scope of work included guiding HPLG’s Board and I, as its Principal Executive, in all aspects of our business strategy, and built up a competent trading organization, implemented a robust risk management system and expanded the commercial footprint of our organization on a global basis.
Since our engagement with him, we have been more than impressed with Gravitas’ delivered results. Mr Lim has recruited the right talents for our trading, risk management, operations and finance teams. Besides helping me formulate and execute transformative business growth and defensive strategies, he also helped curate innovative approaches for various stakeholders from suppliers, customers, bankers and regulators.
Gravitas has surpassed our expectations and elevated our organization’s competencies in many aspects including workflow design, analytics, cost budgeting, production margin hedging and strengthened our commercial practices including legal contracting and cargo operations. We have benefited from Mr Lim’s extensive industry contacts throughout the supply chain. These relationships he has forged over a 25-year career have helped HPLG work successfully with valued partners for the long term.
As the key executive in HPLG, I represent the Board to offer our highest recommendation of Mr Lim’s services to any organization who, like HPLG, aspires to be a premier supply and trading business with best-in-class industry practices, committed to deliver results safely, consistently and reliably.
