ICIS, a leading provider of pricing and market intelligence for the global energy, chemical and fertiliser sectors, has improved its global crude oil coverage, with further insights structured in timely intraday updates on the crude oil market as well as additional market analysis of key drivers.

As part of its ongoing commitment to provide in-depth coverage and remain in line with industry standards, ICIS launched a new price assessment for the key grade Troll in January 2018 and added the grade to its basket of grades that are used in the Dated BFOE assessment.

ICIS has combined its regional reports into a single World Crude Report (WCR) delivered in three daily updates to allow its customers to access information in a timely manner and give insight into key regions around the world: Asia-Pacific, Arab Gulf, North Sea, Mediterranean, CIS, West Africa and the Americas. Our delivery methods have also been improved with WCR data available via the ICIS Excel plug-in to give our customers easy and convenient access.

“Our improved coverage complements the existing market intelligence that ICIS supplies, providing a global view of the market,” said Sophie Udubasceanu, editor of the WCR.

ICIS has a long history in examining and reporting on the global crude oil markets. Our experts based throughout the globe provide market players with the latest daily pricing information.
