LONDON, Sept 24 (Reuters) – ARA gasoline stocks independently held in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp hub declined by 6.7 percent in the week to Thursday, data from Dutch consultancy PJK International showed.
Gasoil and diesel stocks slightly declined as inland demand rose after water levels along the Rhine river recovered a bit in recent days following weeks of severe barge traffic disruptions, PJK’s Patrick Kulsen said.
End-users in markets such as Germany and Switzerland have been replenishing stocks that have drawn in recent weeks due to the barge supply problems, he added.
