"Opportunities in Tank Barges Related to Crude Oil Production and Movement"
Third Edition (Previous Editions in 2011 and 2013)

Over the last 20 years, the new technology of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling has emerged, tapping natural gas and crude oil that was previously inaccessible. This has enabled US crude oil production to increase from 3.8 million barrels per day just six years ago to now topping 9.0 million barrels—a 137 percent increase—and production is seen rising further still, creating opportunities.  The increased energy production is altering the entire liquid transportation market. As transportation routes expand and adjust to meet the need, new challenges arise—such as the recent, dramatic increase in crude petroleum barge loadings. All indications point to the increases in crude oil production from natural gas and oil site extraction, continuing in areas tributary to the river system.  In this Third Edition study, Informa summarizes the current supply, demand and rate outlook for the liquid barge market with conclusions on key market drivers to monitor. With this information, participants can develop a strategy with respect to investment in and use of liquid tank barges.

BARGE COMMODITY PROFILE 2014
10th Annual Edition


Informa Economics is releasing its 10th annual "Barge Commodity Profile" report, which is now available.  Like the Barge Fleet Profile, this report will prove to be an invaluable resource.  The analytic report of historical information incorporates the domestic internal waterborne commerce data of the Army Corps of Engineers by type of barge movement.  Informa Economics then reconciles these movements with the available fleet size from the Barge Fleet Profile Report by barge type to derive Informa Economics' exclusive Barge Pressure Indices for covered and open Barges.
