Oil Price Information Service (OPIS) by IHS Markit (Nasdaq: INFO), an internationally-referenced price reporting agency serving the oil, natural gas and biofuels industries, today announced it has completed the sixth annual independent assurance review of its price assessment fuel prices. Under voluntary Principles for Oil Price Reporting Agencies (PRAs) set forth by the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO), OPIS spot price discovery procedures and policies undergo an annual independent assurance review. The review includes U.S.

Natural Gas, U.S. Natural Gas Liquids, U.S. West Coast Refined Spots, U.S.

Midwest Refined Spots, Asia LPG, Europe Distillates, Europe LPG and U.S. Renewables methodologies. The 2018 report includes the response by OPIS to the IOSCO Principles describing its policies, processes and control activities and governing its assessment of in-scope oil and non-oil benchmarks.

The report includes the findings of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC), who independently reviewed the response. OPIS has now brought further exchange-referenced and industry-endorsed refined products benchmarks into scope, including:

  • U.S. Natural Gas
  • Biomass Based Diesel D4 RINs
