Bloomberg Tradebook, Hart Energy announce deal

Bloomberg Tradebook will team up with Houston-based Hart Energy to distribute the company’s upstream research to the global institutional investor market.

Hart Energy publishes two monthly journals, Oil and Gas Investor and E&P, as well as a number of specialized reports. It covers unconventional resources, along with upstream, midstream and downstream sectors.

Mike Warren, senior vice president for upstream research at Hart Energy, said Thursday the deal will allow investment firms to purchase Hart Energy’s upstream research but won’t affect the company’s current customers.

The company also produces conferences and offers consulting services, along with providing real-time mapping and GIS data.

Warren said Hart Energy won’t make stock recommendations but will tweak the company’s current products to better serve financial clients.
