Our Louisiana Gulf Coast Crude Report is the first of its kind in the market, connecting crude storage, inbound rail delivery, waterborne discharge and outbound pipeline flow data in a single source. The report's coverage of crude storage facilities focuses on key locations that help shape the Louisiana Gulf Coast supply chain, including the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP) and St. James Hub.
Our coverage of LOOP delivers unprecedented insights into the nation’s largest privately-owned crude oil storage facility. The principal distributor of crude oil in Louisiana, LOOP’s prominence in the market expanded with the commencement of the facility’s export operations in February 2018.
As a central connectivity point in the Louisiana Gulf Coast, the St. James storage hub is uniquely positioned to link crude volumes from LOOP to more than 2.3 million barrels per day (bpd) of Gulf Coast refining capacity and approximately 2.25 million bpd of Mid-Continent refining capacity. The Louisiana Gulf Coast Crude report incorporates these major terminals and others to inform your outlook on over 30% of US Energy Information Administration-reported PADD 3 storage capacity.
Acquire vital information on regional supply and demand by pairing the Louisiana Gulf Coast Crude report's inventory storage data with domestic waterborne, outbound pipeline and inbound rail data.

United Arab Emirates upstream summary
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a major oil producing and exporting country located on the Arabian peninsula. The country is a confederation of seven states, or emirates, of which Abu Dhabi and Dubai are by far the most important politically and economically. Most of the UAE's oil and gas production (>95%) is in Abu Dhabi. Abu Dhabi started producing oil in the early 1960s and became a member of OPEC in 1967, four years before the different parts of the UAE united to become one country. The UAE is strategically located at the foot of the Persian Gulf. The country has a coastline on the Gulf and one facing the Arabian Sea opening out to the Indian Ocean. Onshore oil production is exported from terminals on the Gulf coast and there are offshore terminals located on Das and Zirku Islands off Abu Dhabi. The ADGAS LNG plant is also based on Das Island.
Dukhan is an onshore oil and gas field located on the west coast of Qatar. It is a prominent surface anticline which is 80 kilometres long and eight kilometres wide and runs along Qatar's Gulf of Salwa coast. It is similar in structure to the north-south trending anticlines in Saudi Arabia's eastern province. Dukhan produces light sour crude oil (40 °API) from Jurassic carbonates, and non-associated sour gas from the Permian Khuff reservoir. The oil reservoirs were developed in ...
Papua LNG is a proposed LNG facility to be located approximately 25 kilometres north of Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea. The plant will be supplied from the Elk and Antelope gas/condensate fields. The fields are located in the eastern margin of the Papuan Basin, 90 kilometres from the Gulf of Papua coast. The two fields are carbonate reef structures with the smaller Elk structure overlaying the northern part of Antelope.
Abu Hadriyah, Fadhili and Khursaniyah (AFK fields) are three oil and gas fields located in northeast Saudi Arabia, near Jubail Industrial City on the Persian/Arabian Gulf coast. The fields produce a light, sour crude (Arabian Light) predominantly from the carbonate Arab C and D formations. The AFK fields have a long production history dating back to the early 1960s, although rates have fluctuated according to market conditions. The fields peaked at more than 300,000 b/d in the late 1970s ...
COVID lockdowns, the ongoing war in Ukraine, and economic slowdown have all contributed to changes in the NGL market fundamentals last year. Their impacts continue into 2023 which along with emerging macroeconomic factors and the shift in corporate focus will shape the US NGL market this year. In this insight, we focus of four big trends to watch for this year - 1. COVID lockdowns currently weigh down on propane prices, but China PDH startups will increase propane export demand and improve prices 2. Ethane price increase expected in 2023 due to favorable, albeit low ethylene production margins driving more recovery 3. Additional Permian processing capacity will be announced to support growth 4. NGL fractionation volumes getting routed from Midwest to Gulf Coast could impact hub differentials
