ARA product stocks down 3% -Insights Global

Friday, 28 February 2020 | 12:00

Total oil product stocks held in independent storage in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) refining and storage hub fell by about 3% to 5.05 million tonnes in the week to Thursday, data from Dutch consultancy Insights Global showed.

Stocks of most products fell, except for fuel oil’s slight increase, the data showed.

Gasoil stocks fell by about 6% to 2.12 million tonnes and demand up the Rhine was stable, said Insights Global’s Lars van Wageningen.

Gasoline stocks fell 6% to 1.12 million tonnes as exports outpaced imports, Wageningen said.

Jet fuel stocks fell to their lowest since September 2014 at 418,0000 tonnes as demand to store the product in the hub dwindled, he added.
