Through a combination of industry expertise, satellite and terrestrial AIS data, and in-house oil storage data, we provide a comprehensive, weekly report of Rhine barge flows, broken down by refined product type, load terminals and delivery areas. The Rhine Oil Barge Report helps you understand fluctuations in inland barge demand and European refined products market.
Understand oil movement in the Rhine:
- Barge Tracking: We aggregate voyages and calculate the overall volumes of refined products entering the Rhine each week. The metrics on each grade are determined statistically through a unique algorithm. We reference the available storage capacity at each terminal where barges loaded during the week as well as the capacity at discharge terminals along the Rhine and its tributaries and connected canals to get an accurate estimate.
- Waterborne Oil Flow Monitoring: By carefully tracking each vessel using our AIS technology, and referencing detailed intelligence on load and discharge terminals, we accurately estimate true volumes of refined product flows to their final destination.
- Unique Market Insight: European gasoil and ULSD markets are particularly reactive to inland demand. Get weekly commentary on total refined product demand in the region.
Gain a better understanding of ever-changing trade patterns and anticipate future market changes with our Rhine Oil Barge Report. Our specialists analyse the supply and demand factors, oil flows, and policy developments to give you an industry edge.
Our combination of intelligence includes vessel fixtures, keen knowledge of terminals, arbitrage monitoring, and review of public market sources. Streamline your day-to-day operations and identify clear signals to spot trends.
