PetroPeru uses Argus to price gasoline and diesel imports
Houston, 10 July 2017
Peruvian state-owned oil company PetroPeru has begun issuing import tenders for refined petroleum products using price assessments from global commodity price reporting and news agency Argus.
PetroPeru — which supplies more than half of Peru’s 250,000 b/d refined products market — has issued a request for proposals to supply four cargoes of ultra-low sulphur diesel (ULSD) priced on the Argus Colonial pipeline ULSD index, for delivery in August. A separate tender was issued on 6 July for two combined cargoes of naphtha and gasoline blendstock indexed to Argus Colonial pipeline conventional gasoline for August-September delivery.
Argus Media chairman and chief executive Adrian Binks said: “We are delighted that PetroPeru has expressed its confidence in Argus’ refined product indexes. This continues a trend that has seen Latin American countries increasingly turn to Argus pricing in recent years.”
