Crude oil and its derivatives is far from a homogenous product. The unique molecular characteristics of each different source of crude determine how efficiently it will process into a broad range of derivative products, including liquid petroleum gas (LPG), gasoline, jet fuel, diesel, fuel oil and asphalt but also plastics, pharmaceuticals, detergents and much else.
Awareness of movements in demand and prices for crude oil and its products is a key aspect of oil trading. This is delivered by EMA of London’s global network of offices and alliances. Our trading hubs’ close relationships with their regions ensure early awareness of the events and trends that drive demand.
