General Index provides daily price indexes for Asia refined products. The indexes comprise the most liquid grades within the jet fuel, gasoil and fuel oil markets and reflect standardised cargo volumes as typically traded in the spot market. The indices benefit a range of audiences, including traders, refinery operators, producers, airlines and the maritime industry.
All General Index Asia refined products indexes are based on market-accepted methodologies and are therefore fully interchangeable with existing benchmarks.
Certain refined product indexes are calculated through a volume-weighted average methodology, while others are derived through an end-of-day assessment process.
General Index develops new benchmarks in response to market needs in conjunction with industry stakeholders to provide greater transparency across energy markets.
