Listen: What’s In a Name? When WTI Isn’t WTI

On this week’s S&P Global Platts Capitol Crude podcast we look at why there’s a growing price differential between WTI and WTI. Refiner concerns over blending and perceptions over crude quality have led to changes in specifications for WTI. John-Laurent Tronche, managing editor, Americas crude oil, walks us through the confusing issue. And Dennis Sutton, executive director of the Crude Oil Quality Association, talks about the years-in-the-making changes in the market for WTI.
