Measurements

Using measurements from individual voyages provided by HMC-4A Committee members, measurement differences (Bill of Lading vs Outturn) are calculated each year for the majority of traded crude oil grades. Volumes and measurement differences for all grades with 20 or more voyages reported for 2014 can be viewed through the measurement link, together with similar data from 2013 for comparison.
