Argus Global Markets

An Argus business intelligence service, published weekly

Argus Global Markets provides readers with intelligent analysis of the latest trends in the global oil markets and is essential for anyone involved in international trading. The service has been redesigned and offers easier to read tables, graphs and articles.

The report draws on Argus' daily oil price reporting resources to cover regional crude and products markets. Each issue will typically include feature articles on derivatives, arbitrage, market fundamentals and world trading.

The Argus Netback model has also been updated. Argus uses the model to calculate netback margins for a range of crudes in three key regional locations — northwest Europe, the US Gulf Coast, and Singapore. The netback margins are calculated using optimised refining margins, generated using our proprietary LP (Linear Program) model. The model calculates the variable margin (i.e. not taking into account fixed costs) that a range of typical refineries would enjoy from a range of crudes, under prevailing market conditions.
