Exports of North Sea Aasgard, Grane and Statfjord crudes will be stable in April while shipments of Gullfaks will drop by one cargo to six lots, according to separate loading programs obtained by Bloomberg News.
Sales of Grane will be four lots of 600,000 barrels each in April, the same as this month, the plan showed. Seven Aasgard consignments of 855,000 barrels will be shipped next month, unchanged from March, according to a separate schedule.
Statfjord loadings will total five consignments in April, comprised of three lots of 800,000 barrels and two of 855,000 barrels, the program showed. That compares with four 800,000 barrel cargoes and one of 855,000 this month.
The six Gullfaks lots are made up of five 800,000 barrel cargoes and one of 855,000 in April, according to the plan. March loadings of the grade total six lots of 800,000 barrels and one of 855,000.
Statoil ASA, Norway’s largest oil and gas producer, operates the four fields. Loading programs are monthly schedules of crude shipments compiled by field operators to allow buyers and sellers to plan their supply and trading activities.
