S&P Global Platts has started publishing additional import parity prices for ultra low sulfur diesel, jet fuel and gasoline in Brazil, effective September 3.
These prices expand on those launched on November 9, 2018, to cover all 12 of the country's major refinery locations. The decision note published August 28 can be found here: https://www.spglobal.com/platts/en/our-methodology/subscriber-notes/082819-pl atts-to-launch-new-brazil-refined-product-import-parity-prices
The existing import parity prices at five Brazilian ports have been updated to include storage costs and inspection fees. Two new port prices, Manaus and Tramandai, represent the cost of each product imported on the day of publication. They include the product value, freight, demurrage, insurance, losses, marine taxes, storage, inspection, multi-port discharge optionality and quality differences, where applicable.
From these two ports, as well as the five Brazilian ports where Platts already publishes prices, trucking costs are applied to show import parity costs at another nine inland locations.
The new import parity prices are published in $/barrel and in Brazilian Real/cubic meter.
Platts is publishing these prices in Latin American Wire and on Platts Global Alert page 166 under the following codes in the Platts pricing database:
