JODI-Oil FAQ / What kind of oil stock data is reported in the JODI-Oil Questionnaire?

Oil stock data is mainly categorised in tree kinds: primary stocks, secondary stocks, and tertiary stocks. Primary stocks are held by the various companies supplying the market, ranging from producers to refiners to importers. Primary stocks are held in refinery tanks, bulk terminals, pipeline tankages, barges and coastal tankers (if they stay in the same country), tankers in port (if they are to be discharged at port) and inland ship bunkers. Additionally, stocks held for strategic purposes b ...

JODI-Oil FAQ / How are uses of crude oil and NGL which do not go through refining processes reported in the JODI-Oil WDB?

Crude oil, NGL and Other which are used directly without being processed in oil refineries are reported as direct use. This includes, for example, crude oil burned for electricity generation. The amount reported under Crude oil, NGL or Other should be also reported to Receipts of other oil products. The volume of NGL processed to oil products such as LPG in gas processing plants are also reported under direct use. Also check the Last Reply: Yui Torikata / IEF / 28.05.2014 12:06

JODI-Oil FAQ / What is the JODI-Oil definition of crude oil production?

The JODI-Oil definition construes crude oil production as marketable production after removal of impurities but including quantities consumed by the producer in the production process. Crude oil production means the removal of oil from the field, whether through primary or secondary recovery. Although this concept sounds simple, there are many different items that can be included or excluded when reporting crude oil production. The main differences however are between wellhead production and ...

JODI-Oil FAQ / How are oil products such as LPG, which is produced from natural gas processing facilities, reported in the JODI-Oil WDB?

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is the generic name for commercial propane and commercial butane. It can be produced from natural gas processing plants, oil refineries and in natural gas liquefaction plants as a byproduct of the production of liquefied natural gas (LNG). When crude oil and natural gas are produced from the well (either from associated or non-associated wells), they are a mixture of oil, water, sediment and dissolved gases (methane, ethane, propane, butane and pentanes). In the f ...

JODI-Oil FAQ / What is the JODI-Oil definition for NGL?

Liquid or liquefied hydrocarbons recovered from gas separation plants and gas processing facilities. Natural gas liquids are a mixture of ethane, propane, butane (normal and iso), (iso) pentane and a few higher alkanes collectively referred to as pentanes plus. NGL are produced in association with oil or natural gas. They are removed in field facilities or gas separation plants before the gas is sold. All of the components of NGL except ethane are either liquid at the surface or are liquefied ...

JODI-Oil FAQ / What is crude oil? What does it include?

Petroleum is a complex mixture of liquid hydrocarbons, chemical compounds containing hydrogen and carbon, occurring naturally in underground reservoirs in sedimentary rock. Petroleum is normally found at considerable depths beneath the earth’s surface, where, under pressure, it is essentially liquid. At the surface and under atmospheric pressure, petroleum comprises both natural gas and crude oil. The word petroleum comes from the Latin word petra, meaning rock, and oleum, meaning oil. The wor ...

JODI-Gas FAQ / What do gas stock levels include in the JODI-Gas Questionnaire?

Gas stock levels according to the JODI-Gas Questionnaire exclude gas reserves and cushion gas. The term gas reserves refers to quantities of gas not yet extracted, but which analysis of geological data demonstrates with reasonable certainty to be recoverable in future years from known deposits. Cushion gas denotes the volume of gas in a storage facility that must remain in situ to provide the required pressure to extract the remaining gas; because Cushion gas is considered unavailable for ext ...

JODI-Gas FAQ / How does JODI-Gas present trade data, especially for countries with a large volume of re-export through complex pipeline networks?

In some regions, particularly Europe with its complex network of pipeline trade, it is not always possible to exclude natural gas in transit through a country due to a lack of clear distinction between gas that is imported for subsequent export and gas that is imported for domestic use. If a country or economy cannot determine the quantity in transit then it should report trade including the gas in transit, noting this in the metadata.

JODI-Gas FAQ / What are data measurement units?

The JODI-Gas Questionnaire asks countries to report data both in physical and energy units. Therefore, data is available in million m3 (at 15OC. 760mm hg) and terajoules, as well as in 1000 metric tons for LNG trades. In natural gas statistics more so than in statistics for other energy products, the choice of measurement unit and the conditions under which the measurements are taken have significant importance. This arises from the fact that the most appropriate unit can differ depending on ...

JODI-Gas FAQ / What does natural gas production include?

Natural gas production in JODI-Gas refers to the dry marketable production within national boundaries, including offshore production within territorial waters. Production is measured after the purification and extraction of NGL and sulphur. During the extraction process, natural gas may be re-injected into the deposit, vented or flared. Quantities of natural gas used in these manners are not included in production. However, production of natural gas includes quantities used within the natural ...
