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.
