Insight into Critical Pipelines that Supply US Gulf Coast Storage Hubs & Refineries 

Real-time crude oil pipeline data for 86% of pipeline capacity into Houston and Beaumont Nederland

In recent years, the U.S. Gulf Coast solidified its role as a crucial market for U.S. exports by providing a key connection between growing U.S. crude production and global demand markets. With extensive infrastructure changes underway in the Gulf Coast, real-time flow data and reliable information about regional oil infrastructure is essential. Our product includes flow updates by pipeline every 30 minutes, real-time alerting on market-moving events, and intelligence on construction progress for major Gulf Coast pipelines. 

Critical, timely intelligence on crude oil pipeline flows:

  • Timely: Be the first to react. We provide real-time alerts and half-hourly flow updates by pipeline enabling for quick assessment of market moving events. 
  • Predictive: Use our real-time flow data to evaluate the impact on crude oil storage inventories in the Gulf Coast region. 
  • Comprehensive: Our Gulf Coast pipeline product covers more than 6 million barrels per day of capacity, including key Permian-outbound pipelines and major pipelines into the Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coasts.
  • Compatible: Embed our Gulf Coast pipeline data into your own pricing or supply and demand models using our API.
  • Intelligence: Receive ad hoc intelligence reporting on progress of critical pipeline infrastructure progress, which could reveal potential delays.
  • Third party data: Access throughput data collected from various state and federal regulatory bodies for monitored and unmonitored pipelines.

TRADERS:

Use real-time pipeline data to get ahead of storage inventories or other market moving data releases. Trade grade differentials by assessing real-time utilization rates on long haul pipelines from one region to another. Be the first to know about unplanned outages and duration of planned outages. 

ANALYSTS:

Generate and maintain supply and demand balances by using pipeline flow data to track PADD to PADD movements or serve as a real-time proxy for regional production dynamics.

RISK MANAGERS:

Mitigate risk by understanding potential supply and demand imbalances via pipeline flow data. Real-time pipeline flow data can provide insights and guidance for crude oil price hedging, crack spread hedging, and spot market activity and price hedging.

FINANCE OFFICERS:

Assess financial positions with exposure to crude oil prices in real time.

INDEPENDENT & iNTEGRATED OIL COMPANIES:

Stay in the know on pipeline assets and their utilization rates throughout the Gulf Coast region, including key Permian takeaway pipelines. Assess the potential for regional bottle-necking or overbuilding as production and takeaway capacity dynamics evolve. 

MIDSTREAM COMPANIES:

Assess the need for potential new pipeline capacity or the risk of overbuilding by analyzing competitors' utilization rates. See where spare pipeline capacity exists in real time. 

EXPLORATION & PRODUCTION:

Mitigate the risk of limited takeaway capacity from production regions by analyzing pipeline utilization rates and effective capacities.
