Platts Periodic Table of Oil – Not all oil is equal
Following the dramatic rise in US shale output which has transformed the composition of the global oil market, understanding crude quality has never been more important.
Hundreds of different grades and varieties of crude oil are produced globally, from medium-sour Hungo in Angola to Norway’s light-sweet Ekofisk and Mexican heavy-sour Maya crude.
The Market Insight team at S&P Global Platts has created a ‘periodic table of oil’, cataloguing 120 of the most important grades on international markets.
Our interactive chart allows readers for the first time to find key information in one place on region of origin, price, trade volumes, sulfur content, viscosity and trade flows.
