Crude oil

Argus crude oil pricing has been entrenched in the world’s global markets since 1979. Our methodologically appropriate and transparent prices have been adopted in a wide range of commercial contracts, official selling prices, internal transfer pricing, tax formulas and economic modelling used by governments and all aspects of upstream, midstream and downstream markets.

For two decades Argus WTI assessments at Midland and Houston have been the standard physical benchmarks for US crude, as well as the settlement indexes for a robust derivatives market.
