Changing quality mix is affecting crude oil price differentials and refining decisions

Sep 21, 2017
Growth in global liquid fuels supply since March 2017 has been driven by increases in the production of historically higher-priced light crude oils. This growth has more than offset recent declines in the production of medium and heavy crude oils. As these production trends continue, price differences between certain crude oils are narrowing, and refinery operation decisions are changing.

Short-Term Energy Outlook

Sep 12, 2017
Significant disruptions in the U.S. energy market have occurred in recent weeks as a result of Hurricane Harvey. At the time of publication, continuing uncertainty exists regarding the timeline for the return to normal operations for a broad range of upstream production, refining, pipeline, and terminal and distribution infrastructure. The severity and duration of these outages create additional uncertainty about the path of energy prices in the coming weeks and months. Although this STEO attempts to incorporate a baseline scenario for energy production, flows, and prices, actual outcomes could deviate significantly from this forecast. This month's forecast does not include any projected effects from Hurricane Irma, which made landfall in Florida on September 10. At the time of publication, it was too early to have meaningful information on the extent to which Hurricane Irma will cause disruptions to the U.S. energy system.

Hurricane Harvey caused U.S. Gulf Coast refinery runs to drop, gasoline prices to rise

Sep 11, 2017

Hurricane Irma may cause problems for East Coast energy infrastructure

Sep 8, 2017
Hurricane Irma caused significant damage to the northeastern Caribbean and is currently projected to turn towards Florida this weekend. Current model forecasts project that Hurricane Irma will then pass along or just offshore the east coast of Florida, though the actual storm track could change from current advanced projections. To help analysts assess energy-related potential storm effects, EIA maintains an energy disruptions map that displays energy infrastructure and real-time storm information.

Electricity prices reflect rising delivery costs, declining power production costs

Seasonal swings in U.S. distillate inventories lower as consumption patterns change

Aug 31, 2017
Changes in demand trends have significantly reduced the patterns of seasonality in U.S. distillate markets. Historically, distillate use in the United States was highly seasonal because of its use as a home heating fuel. However, over the past three decades, its use as a heating fuel has decreased, distallate fuel exports have increased, and its non-seasonal use as a transportation fuel has become the major demand component.
