ARGUS West Africa Oil

The Argus West Africa Oil service brings clarity to previously opaque west African crude oil and refined products markets.

We provide daily prices for 26 west African crude grades and three types of refined products delivered to the region, alongside independent, timely news and analysis.

Argus has over 50 years of experience in oil market reporting. For this report, we have developed a robust methodology to shed light on the prices of crudes that rarely appear in the spot market, by cross-refering their refining values with those of similar, more transparently traded grades. The Argus West Africa Oil service is your vital tool for understanding these complex markets.
