Vital Insight into Crude Storage Inventories at Key Midwest Storage Hub

Receive the crude oil supply dynamics in this key region with timely, accurate data

Our report delivers a weekly snapshot of oil storage inventories held in above-ground tanks at the largest PADD 2 hub outside of Cushing, OK. With eyes on more than 19 million barrels of storage, we capture critical information on crude supply for Midwest refineries, including Bakken, Canadian, and Louisiana Light Sweet (LLS) crude streams.

Get a more complete picture of the crude oil supply dynamics in the region:

  • Granular Data: Get important information from the individual tank-level and owner-level on storage operationally tied to Midwest refineries, including BP Whiting, Exxon Joliet, Citgo Lemont, Husky Lima, Marathon Robinson, Marathon Catlettsburg, and Phillips 66 Wood River. You also receive crude storage history as far back as 2010.
  • Clear Visibility: See storage trends of Canadian crudes via the Keystone and Enbridge pipelines, Bakken via Energy Transfer Partner's Dakota Access and ETCOP pipelines, and LLS via the Capline pipeline. The Patoka storage hub also helps supply over 2.2mn bpd of Mid-continent refinery capacity. With the Patoka Crude Storage report, you'll get insights into pipeline activity and refinery demand to understand when and where flows will be moving.
