Genscape's Louisiana Gulf Coast Crude report is the first report in the market to publish weekly storage data, including both tank and cavern storage, for the Louisiana Offshore Oil Port (LOOP), allowing previously unavailable insight into the nation’s largest privately-owned crude oil storage facility. Already the principal distributor of crude oil in Louisiana, LOOP’s prominence in the market has expanded since the commencement of its export operations in February 2018.

Louisiana Gulf Coast

The St. James storage hub provides connectivity between LOOP imports and domestic grades to more than 2.6mn bpd of Gulf Coast and approximately 2.25mn bpd of Mid Con refining capacity. St. James serves as the quality measurement point for Louisiana Light Sweet (LLS), a low-viscosity, low-sulfur crude blend, making St. James inventory data useful in determining supply and demand changes impacting LLS.

Access to accurate and timely data at LOOP, St. James, and nine other storage facilities is crucial to understanding market conditions. With Genscape’s Louisiana Gulf Coast Crude report, customers will gain vital knowledge of regional supply and demand by utilizing the domestic waterborne, outbound pipeline, and inbound rail transportation data alongside the crude oil inventory and capacity data.
