Argus Fundamentals

An Argus business intelligence service, published monthly

Argus Fundamentals provides comprehensive data on every aspect of oil supply and demand. Up-to-date monthly data is available for crude and NGLs production, refinery throughputs, refinery output by product, global inventories, crude liftings, arrivals and oil in transit, as well as detailed breakdown of demand by main product groups for 11 of the largest oil consumers.

Average monthly prices for a range of crude and products are also listed. The report allows you to keep track of global oil balances through its quarter-by-quarter global supply demand balance. Uniquely, a supply balance for each of the main trading regions — the Atlantic basin, Asia-Pacific and the Mideast Gulf — is also provided, giving readers an insight into emerging surpluses and deficits in different geographic areas.

Argus Fundamentals includes a monthly commentary on key events in the oil market over the most recent month and presents a view of likely supply and demand trends over the next few months.
