ILMA Partners with Argus to Offer an Exclusive Benefit for ILMA Members
The US base oils market continues to face major structural changes. These are creating challenges and opportunities and increase the importance of timely information and analysis to take advantage of these changes. More domestic US production, combined with increased imports of Group III supplies, has added to the oversupply of light-grade base oils. Several rounds of planned and unplanned refinery maintenance and increased exports have helped to balance the US base oil market in recent years. But those trends have—at times—limited the availability of certain light and heavy grades in the domestic market. At other times, they have resulted in surplus availability.
ILMA has partnered with Argus to provide its members with complimentary one-year access to the new, Argus Americas Base Oils. This report offers an essential weekly overview of the Americas base oil market, including:
- All North American producer posted prices, including those unavailable in other market reports
- Robust commentary and news covering the US and Latin American markets, and analysis of the reasons for and implications of that market activity
- Up-to-date base oil plant maintenance and shutdown information to help gage current and future supply availability
- Tables and graphs tracking market fundamentals like US base oil production, supply and demand, imports and exports and other tools to help identify buying and selling opportunities
- ...PLUS more.
