RBN’s Crude Voyager is a weekly analysis of U.S. Gulf Coast loading activity that explains the ebbs and flows of crude loadings, destinations, and geopolitical issues impacting U.S. exports. It outlines the major paths for laden tankers hauling U.S. crude all over the world and reflects the change in tanker departures to the main regions that consume U.S. crude.
Our weekly report, distributed Tuesday mornings ahead of the EIA, gives market players, analysts and operations personnel an in-depth look at Gulf Coast crude export volumes by terminal. The Crude Voyager also comes with a quarterly supplement, which provides a detailed look at individual ports and new expansion projects.
What you get:
- A weekly analysis with a comprehensive overview of U.S. Gulf Coast activity that breaks down total crude exports by terminal and destination.
- A historical excel file supplement outlining the loading activity of each tanker that picks up oil at the Gulf Coast (only available with annual subscription).
- The VLCC tracker which records the charterers of all tankers that receive reverse-lightered cargoes and analyzes trends in the number of empty VLCC tankers parked in the U.S. Gulf. We include shuttle tankers that move oil to reverse-lightering operations and, when available, their respective co-loaded ships.
- A quarterly infrastructure supplemental update with detailed analysis that includes operational stats, such as port depths and terminal capacities.
