25-9-2014: ARA gasoline stocks rise, gasoil steady

LONDON, Sept 25 (Reuters) – Gasoline stocks at Europe’s Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp hub rose 7.9 percent in the week to Thursday to 644,000 tonnes, according to data from Dutch-based oil consultancy PJK International.

Gasoil stocks were little changed, declining 1.9 percent to 2.736 million tonnes. Naphtha, fuel oil and jet fuel stocks also declined, according to the data.

Gasoil demand along the Rhine river rose over the past week as end users started stocking on winter-grade diesel and heating oil, PJK’s Pieter Kulsen said.

Low outright gasoil prices further boosted demand, though a weak euro-dollar exchange rate limited the buying, Kulsen said.
