As the United States is establishing itself as one of the world’s top crude oil exporters and getting its oil a wide range of destinations, it is increasingly important to have accurate and timely information on American crude export flows, especially at a time when a tightly supplied market riddled with geopolitical uncertainty. As a technology-driven company, Kpler makes the most use of AIS information, comprehensive and regularly updated mapping of all crude oil terminals as well as smart tracking algorithms, making ourselves in the position to ensure the highest level of data accuracy of US oil flows, provide even more immediate and reliable data then EIA and ride the waves of the ever-changing global crude oil market.
