Weekly overview of waterborne crude imports, exports & intra-PADD movements in the East, West & Gulf Coasts of the United States & Canada

Make better-informed trading decisions with timely North American oil market intelligence and analysis

Genscape’s North American Waterborne Crude Report ties together fundamental, actionable intelligence with market developments and analysis. By providing a weekly summary of export shipments that includes their loading and receipt ports, and imports broken down by crude type and delivery port, market players are able to keep track of the latest waterborne movements affecting U.S. refiners and producers.

The report provides loading and discharge volumes for domestic ports, plus an analysis of the market implications of those movements. When paired with Genscape’s Canadian Pipeline data, market participants can more accurately assess all U.S. imports with a granular view of movements between the U.S. and Canada. Genscape’s PetroRail Report then helps complete customers' understanding of the supply chain as crude moves from rail to tanker.

The North American Waterborne Crude Report also covers movements of crude oil along inland waterways, including activity around the Mississippi River and the Intracoastal waterways, to provide a more complete data set for transportation, linking crude-by-rail, inland barge data, and waterborne crude.
