Platts clarifies Dated Brent, CIF Dated Brent assessment date range for Sept 16

Platts, part of S&P Global Commodity Insights, clarifies that its assessment date range for Dated Brent, CIF Dated Brent, and WTI Midland FOB Scapa Flow cargoes will all be extended by one day Sept. 16, following the announcement of a UK public holiday Sept. 19 to mark the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

This means the following date ranges apply for the Sept. 16 assessment:

Dated Brent: September 26-October 19

CIF Dated Brent: September 28-October 19

WTI Midland FOB Scapa Flow: September 26-October 19

Platts also understands that, as Sept. 19 is no longer a Platts publishing day, cargoes loading Oct. 19-21 would be in their final day of chaining eligibility Sept. 16.
