Sept. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Equatorial Guinea will increase exports of its Zafiro crude for November to four cargoes, two more than October, according to a loading program obtained by Bloomberg News.
Exxon Mobil Corp. will shut the Zafiro oil field for about 15 days in October for planned maintenance, two traders with knowledge of the matter said on Aug. 23, declining to be identified because the information is confidential.
The West African nation will also ship three consignments of Ceiba grade, unchanged from October, a separate schedule showed. All cargoes are for 1 million barrels.
Loading programs are monthly schedules of crude shipments compiled by field operators to allow buyers and sellers to plan their supply and trading activities.
