Tanker market report dated 11 December 2020

14 December 2020

Late last week, an explosion at South Africa’s second largest refinery cast focus firmly on the East and South African refined products market. Engen’s 120,000 b/d Durban refinery is small by modern standards but combined with the ongoing outage at Astron Energy’s Cape Town plant (100,000 b/d), the nation’s product balances have moved more sharply into deficit.
