Platts American GulfCoast Select – Export Crude Commentary

  • Platts AGS up 96 cents/b to $44.22/b
  • US crude stocks expected to decline as exports rise


US crude oil inventories are expected to have declined in the week ended Nov. 20 amid rising exports, an S&P Global Platts analysis showed Nov. 23.


Commercial crude stocks are expected to have declined 1.3 million barrels to around 488.2 million barrels last week, analysts surveyed by Platts said. The draw would narrow the surplus to the five-year average of US Energy Information Administration data to 6%, the smallest overhang since the week ended April 3.

The draw comes as US crude exports averaged 2.99 million b/d in the week ended Nov. 20, data from cFlow, Platts trade-flow software, showed. In assessments, Platts American GulfCoast Select rose 96 cents/b to be assessed at $44.22/b. Its differential to the 15 to 45-day Dated Brent Strip was assessed 22 cents/b weaker at minus $1.41/b
