Oil and fuel oil hedging market update

30 Oct 2017 08:59 GMT

By the Oil Desk at Freight Investor Services.



Fuel Oil Market (October 27)

Cracks extend losses, as ARA inventories build. Asia's fuel oil crack fell for a third consecutive session on Friday amid rising fuel oil inventories across key storage hubs over the past week as well as strength in crude oil prices, trade sources said.

Fuel oil stocks in the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp (ARA) oil hub rose 6 percent, or 77,000 tonnes, to 1.334 million tonnes in the week to Oct. 26, PJK data showed. ARA Compared to last year, ARA fuel oil inventories are up 122 percent and are well above the five-year average of 793,000 tonnes for this time of year. Few fuel oil exports contributed to the build in inventories, industry sources said.

One outgoing fuel oil cargo was reported over the past week from the ARA hub to Senegal, PJK data showed. This week, official data showed Singapore fuel oil inventories rose 3 percent to a total of 3.75 million tonnes in the week to Oct. 25. Inventories in (FOIZ) were 6 percent higher in the week to Oct. 23 to a total of 1.38 million
