We pair patented monitoring technology with our own vessel tracking data for a near-real time view into U.S. ethanol exports. Looking at the Gulf Coast in particular, this area is known to export ethanol covering 3.9 million barrels of ethanol storage capacity. Since 2014, 63 percent of all U.S. ethanol exports have come from the Gulf Coast, making this region crucial when tracking global ethanol.
Get weekly updated on confirmed shipments and tank-by-tank storage measurements:
- Vessel Tracking: With our own vessel data, we detect tankers present for large withdrawals from nearby terminals. We capture information on the vessel, volume of ethanol received, and its final destination.
- Coverage: We monitor six terminals across the U.S. Gulf Coast including Houston, Beaumont, and New Orleans.
- Early Insight: As renewable fuel mandates and tariffs across the globe change, be the first to know how they impact ethanol supply and demand using data sources from actual measured data. Our Ethanol Predictor feature also gives an early indication on whether ethanol has been loaded and purposed for export.
Waterborne movements of ethanol in the Gulf can distort government reporting on total storage in the region, ultimately impacting ethanol pricing. Understand the complete PADD 3 and global supply and demand picture of ethanol with daily storage and export volumes.
Understand hidden trends and better inform your analysis. Daily tank-level storage movements can be used to determine actual volumes loaded onto vessels. Additionally, tracked vessels include end destinations providing real-time insights to when new markets open to ethanol.
