The OCTG Situation Report® Has People Talking…

“Hands down the best OCTG publication that is out there… The OCTG Situation Report has proven to be a great resource to gain insight into the US OCTG market, through its in-depth coverage of prices, supply & demand, and general market movements. It is highly regarded across the oil patch for a well-informed perspective on current market conditions.”

As a Wall Street analyst, covering the tubular market effectively is impossible without The OCTG Situation Report. This report is the only reliable source of transparency in an otherwise opaque upstream OCTG market, which is a $15bn annual market in upcycles. Invaluable datapoints and commentary that can’t be found anywhere else are the hallmarks of this industry standard publication.”

“Over the years the OCTG Situation Report has proven to be a consistently reliable and timely tool in understanding the OCTG market.  It is more than just the data, but the analysis and opinions of what the data might be saying that were helpful as an aid in the decision making process.  The quarterly inventory surveys provided confirmation of modeling used to track supply direction trends.  News, pricing, rig counts, shipments, trade, and analysis every month in one report — one of the best subscription values.”
