Interaction Assessment

Benchmark (Price)

Also known as: Marker A benchmark is a price quote for a crude grade or product that is used as a reference for pricing other crudes or products. Typically, benchmarks are for a highly traded commodity, with a quality and location that are similar to other commodities. Some examples are: Brent crude, FOB in the North Sea WTI crude, in Cushing Gasoline, Mean of Platts Singapore


Also known as: Crude assay A crude assay is a detailed chemical analysis of a crude oil that can be used to predict the volume and quality of refined products that will result from processing the crude in a refinery. The assay includes an estimate of the volumes of different distillation cuts or fractions that will result from processing a crude through a crude distillation unit. This is described in terms of the volume of crude that evaporates at different temperature ranges (or boiling points). Typically, an assay contains nine distillation cuts ranging from refinery gas to vacuum residuum. For each distillation cut, the assay will also provide a number of quality characteristics. These include properties that affect how the cut will perform when processed through a conversion. unit (e.g., density, concarbon, N+2A) and properties that affect the quality of any product that the cut is blended directly into (e.g., cetane, octane, sulfur).
