ARA refined product stocks up 6.7 pct – PJK – Reuters News

LONDON, Dec 7 (Reuters) – Refined product stocks held in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp storage and refining hub rose by 6.7 percent in the week to Thursday, data from Dutch consultancy PJK International showed.

Gasoline and gasoil stocks edged lower while fuel oil, jet fuel and naphtha rose sharply.

Gasoline exports out of the region were counterbalanced by an influx of barges from Rhineland refineries.

On top of exports to Britain, about 200,000 tonnes of gasoil were also sent up the Rhine for inland European consumption, up about 30,000 tonnes from the week before, PJK’s Patrick Kulsen said.
