LONDON, April 2 (Reuters) – ARA Gasoline stocks held in independent storage at Europe’s Antwerp-Rotterdam-Amsterdam hub rose to a one-year high of 1.083 million tonnes in the week to Thursday, data from Dutch-based PJK International showed.
“This week, we didn’t see any (gasoline) exports to West Africa and also not much going to the U.S. That was probably the reason for the build,” said PJK’s Patrick Kulsen.
Gasoil stocks were little changed, declining slightly to 2.816 million tonnes from 2.92 million tonnes a week earlier, the data showed.
