July Crude Exports Set to Fall

Iran's crude oil exports in July are set to fall 7% from this month's three-month high, mainly due to a decline in exports to Europe, a person with knowledge of the Middle Eastern country's tanker loading schedule said.
The OPEC member has been raising oil production to recoup market share lost under international sanctions to regional rivals such as Saudi Arabia. Its exports last year also showed a similar decline in July before recovering sharply from August, Reuter reported.
Overall oil output was hovering at more than 3.9 million barrels per day and is expected to reach 4 million bpd by March 2018, Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh said this month.
Crude oil loadings from Iranian ports, excluding condensate from gas fields, will total 1.93 million bpd next month, with 2 million barrels of them being put into storage on tankers, according to the source. Loading figures for condensate, an ultra-light crude, were not available for June and July.
Total crude exports for July will be 1.86 million bpd, up 2% on a year ago, with 1.28 million bpd destined for Asia and 580,000 bpd to Europe. That compared with 1.30 million bpd shipped to Asia and 700,000 bpd to Europe this month.
The biggest buyer China is set to load 658,000 bpd in July, the highest amount since last September and up 3% from June. India remained the second-biggest buyer and is to load 395,000 bpd next month, down 15% on June, the source said.
In Europe, main buyer Turkey is lifting 194,000 bpd next month, down 27% from June. Italy is loading nearly 100,000 bpd, down from 133,000 bpd this month.
Greece and Spain are each lifting nearly 65,000 bpd next month, little changed from June, the source added.
