Rocky Mountain (U.S.)

EAI, Inc. covers the U.S. Rocky Mountain region as part of its Rocky Mountain Petroleum Business Analysis and Outlook study as well as its North American Crude study with focus on the outlook for crude production, runs and crude balances with likely surplus supply for other refinery markets.  Similar to the WTX-NM and U.S. Central Corridor regions, the Rocky Mountain refinery business is enjoying an advantageous crude supply and pricing situation but limited by downstream market access.  The UNEV pipeline from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas is part of the evolution of this area to capitalize on its crude advantage while the pricing advantage over coastal refineries exists. The Rocky Mountain Eastern Corridor extending from Eastern Montana to Guernsey and Denver is growing as an increasing crude source for Cushing and downstream refinery markets.
