Daily exports of 11 main grades of North Sea crude for loading in January will increase by 3.4 percent, according to loading programs obtained by Bloomberg News.
Shipments of Brent, Forties, Oseberg, Ekofisk, Statfjord, Gullfaks, Alvheim, Aasgard, DUC, Grane and Troll blends will total about 64.1 million barrels, or about 2.07 million barrels a day. That compares with about 2 million barrels in revised data for December. The tally does not include Flotta crude, as the loading program has yet to be issued.
Loading programs are monthly schedules of crude shipments compiled by field operators to allow buyers and sellers to plan their supply and trading activities.
