These contracts serve as essential tools for managing risk and capitalizing on market opportunities, providing exposure to the unique characteristics of WTI Midland crude.

Prices of WTI Midland futures are intimately connected to the dynamics of the WTI crude oil market, with distinct regional considerations.

What is WTI Midland?


WTI Midland represents unblended WTI crude directly from the Permian Basin to Cushing, Oklahoma. It is considered a purer form of WTI, distinct from blended crudes that may result from the mixing of different oil streams at Cushing. Recent market trends show a premium for WTI Midland over NYMEX Crude, reflecting concerns about blending at Cushing and the desire for a more assured quality of crude.
