Welcome to the Crude Oil Quality Association!

The Crude Oil Quality Association (COQA) is dedicated to the belief that maintaining the integrity and consistency of the refining characteristics of crude oil streams is of importance to all parties involved in crude oil activity, from production locations to the refinery.

News and Announcements

WTI and Domestic Sweet Quality Data Now Available!

by Dennis Sutton | Apr 26, 2017

For many years, the Crude Oil Quality Association (COQA) has been working on developing more comprehensive specifications for WTI and providing greater transparency in the communication of the quality characteristics of these important streams.

We are pleased to announce that both historical and current quality data are now available on the new web site, www.crudemonitor.us.  Data for all of the COQA recommended specs, including API gravity, sulfur, metals (nickel and vanadium), TAN, and three boiling range parameters from HTSD can be viewed. 

While improvements in the reporting continue, the format, familiar to many from evaluating Canadian crudes on www.crudemonitor.ca, provides both tabular and graphical presentations of this valuable information.
