Crude Argus Media

ARGUS Americas Crude

The Argus Americas Crude service provides market information and price transparency to the rapidly growing US Gulf coast markets as well as to markets in the US midcontinent, US west coast, Canada, South America and other pricing centres in the Americas. Many of the price assessments in the Argus Americas Crude product are set by a volume-weighted average of deals done, and those deals are printed in tables within the report each business day. Argus reports the market in the way that it trades and seeks to represent the entire market and capture all its liquidity.
