While WTI has a sulfur content of 0.24%, Brent has a sulfur content of 0.37%. The lower the sulfur content of the oils the ‘sweeter’ the oil and the easier it is to refine. •The quality of WTI/ Domestic Sweet crude oil has been vitally important to refiners for decades. •Refiners were and continue to be concerned about blending of incompatible crudes into the Domestic sweet stream and the detrimental effect this has on refinery economics and operations. •Beginning in about 2005, the COQA began in earnest WTI, or West Texas Intermediate is a grade of crude oil that is used as one of the several benchmarks in setting oil prices. It is also referred to as Texas light because of its low density and low sulfur content which causes the sweet taste. Brent crude oil is another oil grade used as a benchmark in oil prices all over the world. WTI has an API gravity of about 39.6, making it quite light (having an API gravity over 10 means the petroleum is lighter and floats on water). It also has a sulfur content around 0.24%, making it very sweet. Final Thoughts. NYMEX currently has published WTI specifications for: API Gravity, Sulfur, Viscosity, RVP, Basic Sediment, and Pour Point. There are no requirements on how these properties should be monitored. Current LLS specifications include: API, Sulfur, MCRT, Light Ends, HTSD, Metals and TAN.

Jun 26, 2013 graph of Density and sulfur content of selected crude oils, WTI = West Texas Intermediate; LLS = Louisiana Light Sweet; FSU There are some crude oils both below and above the API gravity range shown in the chart. WTI is probably the most famous of the bench mark oils. It is a light, Countries. The change decreased the API and increased the sulfur content of the basket. Crude oil with a higher sulfur content is classified as “sour. depends on the oil's relative density, based on the American Petroleum Institute (API) Gravity.

Blends of West Texas Intermediate (“WTI”) type light sweet crude streams are Sulfur: 0.42% or less by weight as determined by ASTM Standard D-4294, or its latest Gravity: Not less than 37 degrees American Petroleum Institute (“API”), nor Dalia: crude of medium viscosity, sweet (23.65º API and 0.49% sulphur) and WTI (West Texas Intermediate) is the reference for the United States market for
The sulfur content of both Brent and WTI is well under 1%, making them both “sweet.” They are also less dense (“lighter”) than many of the crude oils extracted elsewhere. Both of these characteristics make them easier to refine and more attractive to petroleum product producers.
