Oil Pipeline Tariff Monitor (OPTM) and Alert Service

Approximately 170 oil pipelines file interstate tariffs with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Keeping track of these filings can be extremely time consuming, but not tracking them can be costly. Tariff filings show what liquid pipelines are doing: increasing or decreasing rates, adding or dropping services, or changing ownership. Arbo's OPTM summarizes all of these filings and Commission orders into a concise and easy to use biweekly publication.
