Fuel Oil Market (January 8)

The front crack opened at -9.90, weakening to -10.05 across the day. The Cal 19 was valued at -11.50.

Asia's front-month high-sulphur fuel oil crack fell on Monday on persisting concerns of weak near-term demand leading to a build-up in supplies, trade sources said.

The February 180 cSt fuel oil crack to Brent crude fell for a fourth straight session to minus $7.38 a barrel, its widest discount since November 2016. Overall profits for Asia's oil refiners dropped to their lowest since May last year as rising supplies dragged down regional fuel prices at the same time that global crude oil prices have climbed to two-year highs.

Clearlake, Gunvor's shipping arm, has chartered a very large crude carrier, Saham, to load up to 270,000 tonnes of fuel oil from Denmark around Jan. 11 for discharge into Singapore by end-February for a $3.05 million fee.
