WTI Midland Becomes a Brent Mainstay

Hey Trader,

WTI Midland Becomes a Brent Mainstay

In the fast-paced world of energy trading, every shift in the market landscape presents new opportunities and challenges.

One such significant development occurred exactly a year ago when WTI Midland secured its place in the esteemed Dated Brent benchmark, reshaping the dynamics of crude oil trading and opening doors to unprecedented opportunities.

Since its inclusion in May 2023, WTI Midland has made a remarkable impact on the global oil market, with 214 cargoes totaling 149.8 million barrels traded in the Platts window.

This surge in physical crude transactions, encompassing 138 WTI Midland cargoes, has injected a new level of liquidity and vibrancy into the market, propelling trading activity in both forward and dated markets to new heights.

As the first non-North Sea blend to join the Brent basket, WTI Midland has introduced a fresh perspective to the benchmark, diversifying its composition and enhancing its resilience.

While WTI Midland has exerted a slightly depreciative effect on the benchmark, being the lowest-priced grade on 130 pricing days out of the total 253 over the past year, its inclusion has fostered a more dynamic and inclusive trading environment.

Moreover, the addition of WTI Midland to the Brent benchmark has revitalized interest among a diverse array of market players, attracting notable names such as US conglomerate Koch Industries, energy giants Saudi Aramco and Reliance, and financial powerhouse Macquarie Group.

This resurgence in participation underscores the growing significance of WTI Midland in the global energy landscape and reaffirms its status as a key player in the crude oil market.
