Oil and fuel oil hedging market update

08 Sep 2017 09:04 GMT

By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services.



By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services Ltd.

Oil headed for the first weekly gain since July as Gulf Coast refiners ramp up crude processing after disruptions from Hurricane Harvey. About 8 percent of U.S. refining capacity remains shut after Harvey first made landfall two weeks ago. Almost a quarter of the nation's capacity was halted following the storm. American crude stockpiles rose by 4.58 million barrels last week, the first gain since the end of June.

While refineries, pipelines and offshore platforms resume operations after Harvey, another Atlantic hurricane, known as Irma, is approaching the U.S. coast and is set to hit Florida on Sunday. Imports into the Gulf Coast region last week fell to the lowest in records going back to 1990 and nationwide crude output fell below 9 million barrels a day for the first time since February. Batton down the hatches, sit tight and good luck to those that have to ride this storm out.
