Crude Oil-WTI Facts

West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil is one of the main oil benchmarks for pricing, alongside Brent Crude Oil and Dubai Crude Oil. WTI Crude Oil is different than other types of crude oil as contains less sulfur (approximately 0.34%) giving it the nickname ‘sweet oil’.

WTI Crude Oil is a high quality oil which is mined in Texas before being refined to create petrol/gasoline for vehicles to use. As WTI Crude Oil has a lower sulfur content it is easy to refine when compared to other crude oil sources.
