Malaysian Kimanis crude exports to fall 20% on month to 4.8 mil barrels in April-January
A total of 4.8 million barrels of Malaysian Kimanis crude oil are scheduled to be exported in April, down 20% from March, trade sources said Thursday.
The shorter program was due to maintenance at the Gumusut-Kakap field where Kimanis is produced, industry sources said, although specific details were unclear.
The latest loading program for the middle distillates-rich crude comprises eight cargoes of 600,000 barrels each in size. The March program had 10 cargoes of 600,000 barrels each.
The cargoes will load from the Sabah Oil and Gas Terminal.
State-owned Petronas is scheduled to load three cargoes over April 6-10, April 16-20 and April 27-May 1, the program showed.
ConocoPhillips has two cargoes for loading over April 10-14 and April 20-24, while Shell has two cargoes for loading over April 13-17 and April 23-27.
Petroleum Brunei has one cargo for loading over April 1-5.
Pertamina and Murphy Oil has no share of the Kimanis crude supply for April.
