LONDON, May 1 (Reuters) – Gasoline stocks independently held at Europe’s Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) hub fell 19 percent to 808,000 tonnes in the week to Thursday, data from Dutch oil analyst Patrick Kulsen showed.
Gasoil inventories in the hub rose 7 percent to 1.645 million tonnes.
Naphtha stocks rose to 262,000 tonnes, and fuel oil inventories rose to 716,000 tonnes, while jet fuel stocks fell to 365,000 tonnes, the data showed.
Demand for gasoil and diesel in northwest Europe was scant over the past week, while imports from the United States and Russia rose, Kulsen said.
