Frequently Asked Questions

Does the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) have data on the type or quality of crude oil?

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

EIA also publishes the sulfur content and API gravity of imported crude oil, along with the volume, source country, and name of the processing facility (refinery) that received the oil, in the Company Level Imports data file. Columns M and N in this data file have the sulfur and API gravity data.

EIA does not publish detailed data on the quality of crude oils produced in the United States.
