Welcome to the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA).

We are an independent research organisation focused on revealing the trends, causes, and health impacts, as well as the solutions to air pollution.

Health-harming pollutants from burning fossil fuels are responsible for at least 3 million air pollution deaths per year. However, rapid advances in modern, clean energy technologies are a key opportunity to improve air quality and protect public health.

We use scientific data, research and evidence to support the efforts of governments, companies and campaigning organizations worldwide in their efforts to move towards clean energy and clean air. We believe that effective research and communication are the key to successful policies, investment decisions and advocacy efforts.

    Urals crude prices were just above USD 50 per barrel, well below the price cap level of USD 60. However, the East Siberia–Pacific Ocean (ESPO) price, mainly applying to Chinese purchases, has remained above the price cap at USD 73–75.

    The week of 16 to 22 January, the share of oil-on-water for crude oil has stayed rather stable. Oil products on water have seen a small dip. The glut of LNG cargoes continues.

    The share of tankers covered by price cap in crude oil shipments out of Russia has stayed above 60%. For oil products & chemicals, coverage of price cap coalition remains high at ∼75%.
    ⚠️Such high shares show the leverage the price cap coalition has to ratchet down price cap.

    The value of oil product shipments was stable. The volume of Russia's seaborne oil shipments has recovered to level preceding EU ban, but value is still down due to fall in RU oil prices.
    ⚠️Increased volume highlights importance of lowering price cap to stop funding Putin's war.
