Oil barrels

HOUSTON (August 2, 2016) – Extending coverage to weekly analysis of crude oil fundamentals, Stratas Advisors' North American research team now offers the Oil Comparables Weekly (OCW) report as part of its North American Oil online subscription service. OCW presents clear and actionable analysis of fundamentals across the oil value chain.

"Subscribers will find this quick weekly read addresses current and historical conditions, as well as industry performance versus fundamental Stratas Advisors forecasts for the quarter and year," said Greg Haas, director of integrated energy research at the advisory firm.

"Year to date crude production is not as tight as the falling rig count would have suggested. Meanwhile, U.S. refineries keep processing amid diminished crack spread margins that are holding up better than Asian and European benchmarks," continued Haas, speaking from his most recent OCW report. "The industry will continue to adjust to the ongoing ramp-up in refined product inventories."

The weekly OCW reports will be accessible to members of the firm’s North American Oil service. This service integrates weekly proprietary fundamental analysis with quarterly and annual forecasts across

the upstream, midstream, and downstream sectors. It covers the most vibrant crude oil and refined product market in the world and includes petroleum liquid fundamentals for Canada and the U.S. Stratas Advisors’ experts address global energy, fuel and petrochemicals sectors and offer insights about these industries and commodities markets.

Greg Haas serves as director of integrated energy research for Stratas Advisors and directs the midstream services covering onshore petroleum infrastructure, differentials and pricing, demand-side shifts and export facilities.
