Crude Oil

Due to new technologies and process improvements, crude oil production in the U.S. and Canada is expected to boom over the next decade, leading to a decrease in overseas oil imports, volatile WTI-Brent pricing spreads and significant growth in infrastructure investments. Platts' crude oil products track these dynamics and provide a new level of visibility into crude oil production and infrastructure in the U.S. and Canada. 

Based on Platts' fundamental analysis, Platts' Crude Oil Production Monitors offer comprehensive coverage of the leading oil plays in the U.S. and Canada, including regional five-year production forecasts, drilling activity, transportation and refining constraints and pricing analysis. In addition, the Petroleum Project Tracker provides a cumulative database where the essential details of all up-and-coming U.S. and Canadian crude oil infrastructure projects can be accessed. Platts' crude oil products cover key production areas including the Williston-Bakken/Three Forks, Utica, Eagle Ford, Permian, Niobrara and the Alberta oil sands.
