  1. Walter,

    The Monthly Analytics subscription covers all the MLPs broadly but I don’t think I have a product that best suits your specific task on OCIR unless you would like to have some custom work done (which may be cost prohibitive). Please feel free to email me though if you have something specific in mind.

    Best Regards,

    I am doing extra work on OCIR which, as you know, is a 51% interest in OCI Wyoming LP; the remainder 49% owned by NRP.

    Which of your products best suits my task?
