ARA gasoline stocks drop 8.6 pct

LONDON, April 28 (Reuters) – Gasoline stocks independently held in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp hub dropped by 8.6 percent in the week to Thursday, Dutch consultancy PJK International said.

Naphtha stocks also dropped as tankers left the region to Asia, the U.S. East Coast and West Africa to meet demand for gasoline and the petrochemicals sector, according to PJK analyst Patrick Kulsen.

Diesel stocks also declined over the past week due to inland demand and refinery maintenance in the ARA region, Kulsen added.

PJK International is also consulted for (medium and long term) supply and demand forecasting, tradeflow forecasting, oil tanker vessel tracking and its view on price trends on NWE oil markets. Read more on PJK Consultancy Services
