Refiners and suppliers maintain competitive prices and create fuel supply contracts based on OPIS spot and wholesale pricing.

Refiners must know where the market is trading and trending at any time. As suppliers forge relationships with customers and sign fuel contracts with them, price formulas backed by accuracy and fairness for the benefit of both the supplier and buyer sides are critical.

  • The OPIS Spot Ticker shows refiners where prices are trading throughout the day, in order to price products competitively.
  • Suppliers can access benchmark rack pricing for transparent wholesale price discovery at more than 1,500 terminals in nearly 400 markets. OPIS wholesale rack prices are the most-widely referenced pricing resource for supply contracts in the U.S.
  • Use spot pricing data for the negotiation of spot-plus formula deals with customers.
  • Solve billing discrepancies and evaluate price trends using our extensive historical price database, TimeSeries. It includes historical spot and wholesale gasoline and diesel pricing and spot jet fuel pricing.

Refiners buy low, sell high and maximize crack spreads based on OPIS price data.

The foundation of a refiner’s business involves buying crude oil and feedstocks at the most cost-effective level possible, then maximizing gasoline, diesel and jet fuel product sales.
