In 1979, Argus was the first company in the world to publish a daily report on prices in spot crude oil markets. Since then, we have grown to cover daily prices in more than 100 spot crude markets around the world. Our reported prices have been adopted in a wide range of contracts, official selling prices, internal transfer pricing, tax formulas and economic modelling used by producers, refiners, traders, governments, academics and others. Our regional and global reports provide critical market insights and price assessments that our customers have come to rely on.


Our key crude prices, including WTI Houston, the ASCI index and others, are used extensively as benchmarks for derivatives and as indexes in physical contracts.
