ARA gasoline stocks rise 10 pct – PJK – Reuters News

LONDON, July 19 (Reuters) –

  • Gasoline stocks independently held in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp refining and storage hub rose by over 10 percent in the week to Thursday, data from Dutch consultancy PJK International showed.
  • The rise in stocks comes amid slower export activity to the U.S. East Coast and West Africa, PJK’s Lars van Wageningen said.
  • Diesel demand in inland markets remained weak, with slower activity in the ARA barge market also due to the lower barge loading capacity due to low water levels along the Rhine river, van Wageningen said.
