Argus’ pre-eminence in coal market reporting and indexation means that our coal prices, particularly the API 4 fob Richards Bay - South Africa, published in partnership with McCloskey, are widely used for trading African coal.


The API 4 index is the benchmark price reference for coal exported out of South Africa’s Richards Bay terminal and is used in physical and over-the-counter (OTC) contracts. It is calculated as an average of the Argus fob Richards Bay assessment and the IHS McCloskey FOB Richards Bay marker.


The API 2 index is the benchmark price reference for coal imported into northwest Europe. It is calculated as an average of the Argus cif ARA assessment and the IHS McCloskey NW Europe Steam Coal marker.

Argus’ regional crude coverage is extensive and well-regarded, with more Nigerian grade assessments than any other price reporting service, and a range of Angolan and Equatorial Guinean prices. 

In the Argus Bitumen report, we have launched a range of bitumen prices for various points around the continent in a greatly expanded service. And Argus LNG Daily has a West African LNG export price.

Argus is set to launch a daily West Africa Oil Bulletin, that will include a range of crude prices derived from netbacks for crude grades from Nigeria, Angola, the Republic of Congo, Gabon and Cameroon, in addition to grades already assessed in the Argus Crude report. This publication will also carry daily reference prices for gasoline, diesel and heating oil delivered into West African ports.
