LONDON, May 8 (Reuters) – Gasoline stocks independently held at Europe’s Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) hub fell 6 percent to 758,000 tonnes in the week to Thursday, data from Dutch oil analyst Patrick Kulsen showed.
Gasoil inventories edged down by 2 percent to 1.619 million tonnes. Naphtha and fuel oil stocks rose, while jet fuel inventories fell.
The fall in gasoline stocks was due to strong exports from the region to the U.S. East Coast and West Africa, where Nigeria recently tendered to buy 1.85 million tonnes of gasoline in the second quarter, Kulsen said.
