Does EIA have data on the type or quality of crude oil?

EIA publishes the monthly and annual weighted average sulfur content and API gravity of all crude oil input to U.S. refineries by PADD and refining district.

EIA also publishes the sulfur content and API Gravity of imported crude oil including the source country and the name of the U.S. refinery that purchased the oil in our Company Level Imports file in columns M and N.
