General Index's US crude prices are based on an all-day volume-weighted average spanning key grades and locations across the Gulf Coast, Texas, and the midcontinent.
The General Index European crude module comprises the Dated Brent spot price, as well as spot price assessments for the constituent five grades.
MIDDLE EAST CRUDE
The service includes General Index's OSP reference basket for Asia comprised of Oman and Dubai grades – an index not published by any other price provider.
CROSS ATLANTIC CRUDE
The Cross Atlantic Series (CAX) crude and product indexes are blends of European and American benchmarks that reflect the fluid nature of trade.
General Index has developed a new crude index to better reflect market conditions and the shifting roles played by the three major benchmarks - Brent, WTI and Oman - in the producing areas of the world.
