1 minute read

Refinery I/O can enable you to predict changes in the refinery market through robust, actionable intelligence. It could save you time and help you gain competitive advantage. But how?  

Read on for the top three things you need to know about Refinery I/O – and fill in the form to request a demo. 

  1. Refinery I/O is the only product to combine refinery analytics and intelligence tools with proprietary operations monitoring

Refinery I/O transforms a host of data sources into one powerful API solution and gives you access to market data that isn’t available anywhere else. It provides a clear view of US and Canadian refinery crude inputs and outputs to enable you to quickly identify opportunity and risk.  

Over 1,020 data points for more than 145 refineries are delivered via API every day, drawing on five Wood Mackenzie services:  

  • North American Refinery Intelligence Service: Real-time, unit-level on/off signals and unit-level nameplate stream day capacities
  • PetroPlan: Individual, refinery-level process configurations and operational optimisation
  • Refinery Evaluation Model (REM): Refinery-level crude slate, configuration, and yield data
  • Refinery Supply Model (RSM): Refinery-level configuration, connectivity, and crude supply/substitution for least-cost optimisation
  • Product Market Service (PMS)- Short Term: Global, balanced economic data

Refinery I/O leverages a proprietary sensor network of 350+ fixed infrared cameras that allows our analysts to observe refinery operations, activity, and maintenance at the unit level. We also capture data at unmonitored facilities using verifiable intelligence. Our experts collect information on refinery status – such as normal operations, turnarounds, upsets, or weather-related shutdowns – and use these parameters along with signals from monitored locations.  

As a result, our coverage is both unique and comprehensive.  

  1. Refinery I/O transforms granular data into actionable intelligence 

Refinery I/O isn’t just about data – you also get robust analysis and insight. On top of its daily refinery-level API feed, Refinery I/O delivers a weekly report every Monday at 10:30AM ET. Each report includes aggregate country and region-level charts and analysis for crude inputs and product outputs, market highlights from our analysts and known equity guidance from public operators. There’s also supplemental information on the impact of major weather events and other disruptive forces, such as the impact of Covid-19.  

What’s more, you also gain access to our global team of experts for questions or requests for specific information.

  1. Refinery I/O delivers insight ahead of EIA, state regulatory data and earnings.

Refinery I/O strives to publish the most accurate, daily, model calculations based on our signal intelligence. It enables you to keep pace with daily changes in the market and make informed trading decisions ahead of the EIA release.  

Of course, speed isn’t everything. We pride ourselves on the accuracy of our data, and may recalibrate as historical EIA, Canadian and state-level regulatory data becomes available. And we regularly expand our real-time sensor network to capture additional units and refineries, continually increasing our coverage of storage fields, pipelines, refineries and other crude and refined product facilities. 

Refinery I/O offers refinery-level granularity and daily frequency allowing the user to create custom aggregations for various use cases. Compile company level crude runs and refined fuel production to access market data by refinery or companies not available from any other product in the market ahead of earning releases.
