Rotterdam confirms 9.7% drop in fuel oil throughput in 2016

16 Feb 2017 11:13 GMT

Seagoing vessels handled 5.7 million tonnes less fuel oil last year.



Fuel oil throughput in Rotterdam fell by 5.7 million tonnes, or 9.7 percent, in 2016, Port of Rotterdam Authority has told Bunker Index.

The volume of fuel oil that was handled by seagoing vessels last year was 53.3 million metric tonnes, down from 59 million tonnes in 2015.

Last week, the Dutch port revealed a 0.5 percent decline in liquid bulk throughput to 223.5 million tonnes in 2016, but did not go into specifics regarding the fall in fuel oil throughput, or the increase in the amount of gas oil, diesel, kerosene, petrol and naphtha that was handled.

As reported previously, throughput of crude oil in Rotterdam declined by 1.2 percent to 101.858 million tonnes in 2016, down from 103.090 million tonnes the previous year. Although refinery margins dipped slightly, crude oil input levels were said to have been "at the upper end of the historical spectrum".

Following a rise of 18.0 percent in 2015, more oil products were handled again in Rotterdam last year as the figure increased by 0.3 percent to 88 million tonnes.

The volume of liquefied natural gas (LNG) that was handled last year dropped by 26.1 percent to 1.705 million tonnes, down from 2.308 million tonnes in 2015, following an increase of more than 90 percent in 2015.
