Crude oil inventories at the Cushing, Oklahoma storage hub hit an all-time high in March 2015, fueling incentive to shift storage play to the Gulf Coast as rapid builds put Cushing near operational capacity. The Gulf Coast is the largest refining center in the U.S., and with Cushing filling up and U.S. production showing no signs of slowing, this key hub is emerging as a critical region to watch.

Pipeline Capacity Map

Insight on the U.S. Gulf Coast, and the rest of PADD 3, has been limited to a weekly total volume number from the Government, but aggregated Government data on PADD 3 cannot tell the full story. With monthly expansions in infrastructure being deployed and growing shale production impacting take away capacity, the supply demand picture is changing too rapidly to manage risks and opportunities effectively with an aggregated view of the market.  

Genscape’s new U.S. Gulf Coast Crude Supply Chain Service provides granular inventory levels, 30-minute pipeline flows, and real-time camera tracking of refinery performance to provide never-before-seen transparency to this crucial market. Traders, analysts, hedge funds, and infrastructure owners now have insight to where capacity exists beyond Cushing — and the ability to stay ahead of changes and manage risk more effectively.

Genscape’s U.S. Gulf Coast Crude Supply Chain Service provides comprehensive coverage that includes:

  • Over 164 mn bbls of storage capacity measured weekly in Houston, Beaumont/Nederland, Corpus Christi, Midland/Basin and St. James covering 700 tanks and ongoing tracking of construction and maintenance
  • Over 3.2 mn bpd of pipeline capacity monitoring with 30-minute flow updates, daily and weekly averages, and ongoing tracking of build-outs and ramp-ups as new pipes come online
  • Over 7 mn bpd of refinery operations with real-time status monitoring and daily updates of the full network plus ongoing tracking of expansions

Through the U.S. Gulf Coast Crude Supply Chain Service, Genscape’s proprietary monitoring technology for pipeline flows, storage levels, real-time refinery performance, and infrastructure updates provides an unmatched glimpse into key fundamentals in this region. For more details, visit:
