Users can sort and display crude oil imports by year, crude type, country source, port of entry, processing company and processing refinery. The tool features graphing and mapping capabilities and a built-in help function. According to EIA, it sheds light on adjustments to imports being made in response to growing production of crude oil within the U.S. It is being launched on EIA’s beta site to solicit customer feedback, and incorporate those comments into the final release. Also being released by EIA are sample applications of the new tool, selected to illustrate the tool’s capabilities to access information from the agency’s monthly Company Level Import database for different time periods, regions, companies and crude oil qualities. EIA is the statistical and analytical agency within the U.S. Department of Energy.
