Antitrust compliance reminder

Argus takes compliance with antitrust law seriously. The purpose of the Argus Americas Crude Summit is to provide a high-level update on changes taking place in the crude markets including supply/demand fundamentals, North American infrastructure dynamics as well as understanding the complexities of global trade flows. The conference sessions will follow the agenda as circulated.

Argus reminds all participants of the need to be mindful of the requirement to comply with antitrust and competition laws. There should be no discussion of any matters relating to competition among participants, including discussion of individual prices, rates or market strategies and no exchange of information concerning any other competitive aspect of an individual company’s operation. Should any participant to this conference attempt to initiate a discussion with other participants on any of these matters, we recommend that other participants end the conversation immediately and at all times act in accordance with their own antitrust compliance policies and all applicable laws.
