Key Features

Model Pipeline, Rail and Waterborne Crude Oil Movements

Leverage the map view to change displays by selecting pipeline/waterborne/rail transport paths, production regions or refining hubs so you can:

  • Drill down to see individual pipeline capacities, variable transport rates by grade and modeled crude flows categorized by crude quality
  • Analyze a path to see the quantity and quality of crude flowing through it and how close it is to capacity
  • Analyze a producing region to understand the quantity, quality and disposition of its supply
Drill down to see individual pipeline capacities

Robust Model of Refinery Operations

Analyze the crude balance of the hub to see inflows, outflows and flowthroughs by drilling down to see individual refining center operations, so you can understand the crude slate, fraction flows and end-product outputs.

Analyze the crude balance of the hub to see inflows





Full North American Coverage

No blind spots. Enverus has the entire U.S. and Canadian production, movements and refinery operations covered.

137 Unique Refineries

View refineries and condensate splitters for every state and province with processing unit capacities fully enumerated.

127 Unique Pipeline Systems

View not just pipeline paths between hubs, but actual pipeline systems with unique operational and commercial characteristics (receipt/delivery points, quality specifications and shipper commitments).

Rail, Coastal Barges, Imports, Exports

Enverus models flows into, out of and throughout all modes of transport in the U.S. and Canada.

Crude Volumes Categorized by Quality

Create a more in-depth analysis by categorizing volume balances for lights, heavies, sweets and sours instead of generic crude oil.

16 Unique Refined Product Categories

Enverus’ proprietary refining model goes beyond simple yield profiles and assesses each refinery’s potential product slate, not just principal products like gasoline, jet and diesel.

Customizable Model Configuration

Use Enverus’ capacities, turnaround schedules, processing unit capacities and other assumptions, or apply your own.

Quick Turnaround for Model Results

Produce a detailed five-year forecast in less than two hours.

Easy-to-Use User Interface

Friendly user interface allows your team to use OptiFlo Crude without knowing how to code.

Export to Excel
