How will this impact my existing subscription with Pipe Logix?

You will continue to receive your service from Pipe Logix until we migrate your account to the Argus product delivery system. We will complete the switch after thorough testing and communication to minimise disruption to your service. In the interim, and depending on your subscription, you may notice PipeLogix reports including news and data from across the Argus portfolio. We will continue to add value to both Argus and PipeLogix services over the coming months.


How can I renew my subscription or place a new order?

New orders and renewals can be arranged through the Argus Pipe Logix order portal. If you are a current subscriber, then you do not need to fill out this form. A member of the Argus Pipe Logix team will reach out to transfer the renewal of your subscription to the Argus system.


Will there be a change in payment method?

We do have plans to transition the Pipe Logix online payment portal to Argus’ invoicing system, but this will be communicated in advance once we confirm the details. Argus benefits from a global customer success team that is on hand to answer any questions you might have around payment or renewal.


What will happen to existing contracts tied to price indexes within a Pipe Logix report?

The newly integrated Pipe Logix service will continue to produce the index in the same way to minimize the impact on any existing contracts. The names of the products that deliver the index will change to reflect the integration of the Argus brand and should be updated in contracts as it becomes convenient to do so.

In the meantime, for avoidance of doubt, it is recommended clients take necessary steps such as review of the contract terms by your legal team to avoid any confusion with counterparties. Please reach out to Argus if there any concerns around the commercial application of the Pipe Logix indexes related to the change of the service name.
