LONDON, March 6 (Reuters) – Gasoline stocks at Europe’s Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp storage hub rose about 11 percent to 989,000 tonnes in the week to Thursday, data from Dutch oil consultant Pieter Kulsen showed.
Naphtha stocks rose to 94,000 tonnes this week from 81,000 tonnes the previous week. Fuel oil and jet fuel stocks also rose.
Gasoil stocks fell to 1.901 million tonnes from 1.988 million the previous week, the data showed.
Demand for gasoline and gasoil has risen in recent weeks in northwest Europe, specially along the Rhine river, as refineries entered planned spring maintenance, Kulsen said.
The switch from winter-grade products to intermediate and summer grades further boosted demand, he added.
