SINGAPORE- Middle East crude benchmark Dubai, as quoted by price-reporting agency S&P Global Platts, rose to an average of $72.903 a barrel in July, trade sources said on Monday, the highest since October 2018.
The monthly averages for June for Dubai and Oman as quoted by Platts are indicated in the table. Middle East producers set their monthly official selling prices (OSPs) at premiums or discount to these averages.
Saudi Aramco changed the benchmark for setting its official selling prices to Asia starting from October 2018 to the average of Platts Dubai and DME Oman crude futures.
