The Red Sea remains one of the critical global chokepoints for international trade. For oil, an average 8.5 million b/d of crude oil and refined products sail through the Red Sea according to our Vessel Tracking, Crude Trade Service and Refined Product Trade deliverables. However, the Israel-Gaza war has triggered Houthi attacks in the Red Sea on global shipping.

In this Insight we highlight the impact on oil demand from the diversions around the Cape of Good Hope.
