Three Europe-Bound Tankers Tracked to Continent This Week
Three tankers carrying 147,000 metric tons of jet fuel are tracked arriving at ports in north west Europe or the U.K. for the week beginning Nov. 16, according to the OPIS Tanker Tracker on FleetMon.com.
No vessels are seen bringing in jet fuel from outside Europe to discharge at ports in the Mediterranean this week.
The weekly arrivals tally for north west Europe compares to 375,000 tons arriving in Europe the prior seven-day period from Nov.9-15. Of these volumes, 65,000 tons was discharged at a port in the Mediterranean; the remainder went to north west Europe.
November arrivals of jet fuel into Europe are 1,354,000 tons on 23 tankers, according to the OPIS Tanker Tracker. Of this, 1,084,000 tons is destined for north west Europe or the U.K., with the rest coming into European ports on the Med. Several vessels have been removed from the tally this week as vessel movement and satellite positions was at odds with market intelligence.
Monthly volumes for November compare to just over 1.6 million tons in October, as assessed by the Tanker Tracker, and is the lowest level seen since February this year, when Eurostat data showed 1.1 million tons arriving in the 28 member countries.
Ships arriving this week include the Alam Bistari for BP at the U.K. port of Thamesport, delayed after first calling at Malta, a known transshipment area, on its way from the Middle East Gulf.
The Kuwait Petroleum-controlled Al Dasma, laden with 90,000 tons, is signaling it will arrive at an undisclosed port in France by Nov. 20.
