Oil Products Market Trends
The Mideast Gulf jet fuel premium rose to an average of $7.67/bl in February from $7.93/bl in January. Premiums eased amid less workable east-west arbitrage.
The Mideast Gulf exporters shipped out just 664,000t of jet fuel in February, of which more than a half – 369,000t – were exported to Europe. This is sharply down from 1.57mn t of jet fuel exports in January and 1.60mn t in December, of which 910,000t and 708,000t left for Europe, respectively.
Difficult arbitrage and ample jet fuel supplies also weighed on Asian jet margins, which fell to an average of $23.43/bl in February from $32.62/bl average in January.
Premiums narrowed under pressure from unfavorable east-west arbitrage economics. The Mideast Gulf exported around 3.75mn t of gasoil in February, preliminary Vortexa data showed, less than the 3.83mn in January or 4.06mn t in December. Exports fell amid a fall in European import demand – one of the main outlets for the Mideast Gulf’s gasoil. Europe stocked up on gasoil ahead of the Russian products import ban into EU that came into effect on 5 February. Meanwhile more Asian gasoil arrived to east and south Africa, competing with gasoil from the Mideast Gulf.
VLSFO’s refining margin, calculated against Dubai crude, fell to $6.65/bl on 27 February from $9/bl on 20 February. The last time the margin was lower on 22 September 2020 when it fell to $6.41/bl.
The HSFO market firmed despite expectations of more Russian inflows diverted to Asia after EU sanctions on Russian oil product imports. But some returning south Asian utility demand, particularly from Bangladesh, could have supported markets. Fuel oil arrivals to Bangladesh in February were around three-month highs of 194,500t, according to Vortexa data.
