Bringing together a wealth of proprietary and essential data, World Crude Oil Data has proved an invaluable tool for traders, analysts and planners in the 17 years since it was first published as the International Crude Oil Market Handbook. The latest edition builds on this strength, updating previous versions to reflect both the quality and geographic shifts under way in the global oil markets. With profiles and summary assays for 177 of the world’s most important traded crude streams, it not only allows users to benchmark specific crudes against one another and to accurately assess both stream and country-level production and trade data, but by presenting a more comprehensive picture of the market, it provides important insights into developments and emerging trends within the oil sector. In this edition, you will find:

  • 21 new crude profiles. The new entries reflect the changing geographic mix of global crude trading. Of the new crudes, 9 are in the Americas, 6 in Africa, 3 in Asia, and the last 3 in Europe and the Middle East.
  • 58 new or updated assays; 177 assays in total.
  • 45 country profiles: 43 exporters and the 2 largest importers, accounting for 70.5 million b/d (85%) of global production in 2010.
  • The country and crude profiles, trade, prices and legal aspects have been entirely revised and updated.
An Enhanced Web Data Tool

World Crude Oil Data is now an enhanced, interactive web-based tool. Updates to the tool will be made periodically throughout the year, and coverage will be expanded to include additional crudes whose volumes have declined significantly, but still play important roles in regional markets. The capabilities of the new tool enhance the utility of World Crude Oil Data by allowing clients:

  • Easy access to specific crude data and the ability to filter and search by key production and volume characteristics.
  • The ability to compare specific crudes by the key quality parameters.
  • Searches of the database by country, region, volume, producer, logistics, even price and benchmark.
