Moreover, consecutive fourth week rise in US crude oil inventories put downward pressure on prices towards the end of the week. North Sea Dated crude’s weekly average decrease by US$0.18/bbl, in the week ended 23rd February. Our ex-RVO global composite refining margins by contracted US$2.35/bbl to US$7.62/bbl, owing to decline in light and middle distillates cracks across Singapore, NWE and USGC.
