10-07-14: Weekly ARA gasoline stocks down 10%

LONDON, July 10 (Reuters) – Gasoline stocks independently held at Europe’s Amsterdam-Antwerp-Rotterdam (ARA) hub fell by 10 percent to 798,000 tonnes week-on-week, data from Dutch oil consultant Patrick Kulsen showed on Thursday.

Gasoil stocks rose 4 percent to 2.598 mln tonnes, the tenth straight week of gains, fuelled by low demand, high imports and a contango at the front of the gasoil futures curve that makes storage profitable.

Naphtha, jet fuel and fuel oil stocks all fell, according to the data.
