Report summary

For the week commencing 2nd October gross refinery margins varied across the regions. The Brent crude price weakened for the first time in almost two months. Crude prices came under pressure as production and export volumes were able to recover in Libya at the El Sharara field last week. Moreover the weekly average Brent WTI differential remains wide and close to US$6/bbl making US crude more attractive for European and Asian buyers. Consequently US crude stocks fell by 6 mbbls with the majority of the drawdown on the US Gulf Coast. In the slide pack available in the Downloads section weekly changes in prices and refinery margins are presented for six key pricing points around the globe: Northwest Europe Mediterranean US Gulf Coast New York Harbour Middle East Gulf Singapore
