Webinar: Spotting Ethanol Export Trends & Impacts in an Uncertain Market

Understand how to leverage export data for key insights into the ethanol supply chain

This webinar has already taken place on Tuesday, September 19, 2017. Please fill out the form on the right to watch the recording.

With PADD 3 comprising over 70 percent of total U.S. ethanol exports in 2017, the importance of having timely, reliable information on PADD 3 exports is extremely vital within the current uncertain market. Through the month of June, ethanol has been leaving the country at approximately 2 million barrels per month with the expectation that this will continue throughout the rest of the year. There are multiple products that provide information on the storage and production of domestic ethanol. However, the lack of real-time information on exports creates a void in the supply chain.

Watch the on-demand webinar and join Genscape’s Agriculture & Biofuel experts, Creed Gann and Jim Venhoff, for an inside look at how the Ethanol Export Monitor product is created and how it can be used to fill the existing gaps in domestic ethanol supply and demand.

Topics covered in this webinar:  

  • PADD 3 ethanol export trends
    • Current year vs. previous years
  • Methods of tracking ethanol exports
    • What is the market currently using?
  • Introduction to the Ethanol Export Monitor
    • Overview
    • Impacts of intra-weekly ethanol storage measurements
    • Vessel events at known ethanol storage terminals
  • What’s next?
    • Terminal/PADD coverage
    • Movement of non-fuel ethanol
    • Comparison to government/industry data
    • Foreign tariff impacts

The presentation was followed by a live Q&A session, during which our expert analysts addressed any questions raised before and during the webinar.

Genscape's Ethanol Exports Monitor combines proprietary ethanol storage information with location data for vessels that are believed to be purposed for export. The monitor provides granular storage insight by leveraging infrared imagery derived from weekly flyover and daily drive-bys. This is in combination with insights from both Genscape Vesseltracker AIS data and events data that share an accurate picture of vessel arrivals. The monitor also includes a daily vessel lineup and a weekly summary of ongoing list of vessels with volumes believed to have exported ethanol. Click here to request a free trial today.
