West Texas Crude Oil Storage Measurements Not Available Anywhere Else

Get exclusive insights into the key terminals connecting Permian Basin production to the Gulf Coast and Cushing

Oil production in the Permian Basin is expected to rise to 4.7 million barrels per day by the end of 2019. The West Texas region located along the Plains Basin Pipeline is a critical juncture where Permian crude can be delivered to refineries along the Gulf Coast or to Cushing for storage. This is a key factor in understanding the developing supply chain and its market impacts. Our unique weekly report provides inventory measurements down to the tank and operator level for the Midland, McCamey, Crane, Colorado City, Odessa,  Wichita Falls, and Wink terminals. The report also includes a detailed breakdown of capacity to paint a clear and comprehensive picture of the current levels at each hub.
