Supplies are at the lowest since the week ended May 23.
Stockpiles of light distillates such as naphtha, reformate and gasoline, fell 2 percent to 11.24 million barrels. Middle distillates, a category that includes gasoil and kerosene, dropped 4.2 percent to 8.94 million barrels.
The trade ministry unit surveys refiners, oil companies and storage terminals on a voluntary basis. The results may exclude some offshore storage capacity, International Enterprise said.
