Team Sea and Coast | 08/07/2019

The June figure was 37% higher than that of May, and much higher than the 1.7 million tonne monthly Jan-May average, the data showed

* Saudi Arabia accounted for 38.3% of June arrivals, while India and the United States accounted for 19.3% and 15.4%, respectively

* “The discharge of diesel cargo from a VLCC (via ship-to-ship transfer), along with a flurry of Suezmax and Long Range (LR2) tankers going into the ARA region, lifted June import levels above the 12 and 24-month seasonal averages,”.
