印度石油需求自2月以来首次出现年度增长

中国石化新闻网讯 据彭博社11月13日消息:印度报告称,自今年2月以来,该国石油消费量首次出现年度增长。这证明尽管冠状病毒病例不断增加,但这个耗油大国的需求已经回升。

根据石油部石油计划与分析小组发布的临时数据,10月石油总需求同比增长2.7%,达到1780万吨。道路燃料达到了疫情水平,但对石脑油的需求才真正飙升。石化工业原料的消费量猛增15%。

全球第三大原油消费国的复苏可能有助于巩固本周油价在新冠肺炎疫苗突破后的反弹。印度3月下旬的严格封锁抑制了燃料需求,导致石油化工厂的原油加工和运营大幅削减。

印度石油公司董事长Shrikant Madhav Vaidya表示,自11月第一周以来,印度炼油厂一直在进行扁平化加工,到明年第一季度,该国成品油市场应该会“接近正常”。

石脑油是石化工厂最终用于制造塑料、汽车和耐用消费品,在经历了数月闲置后,随着需求开始回升,产能开始大幅增长。

另外,财务总监Sandeep Kumar Gupta表示,印度石油的一些石化厂在7月至9月期间因产量下降而削减了一半业务,但在10月已将加工用量提高至85%。

全球基准布伦特原油上周五在亚洲跌破每桶43美元,但本周涨幅仍超过8%。

Indian Oil Demand Posts First Annual Growth Since February

India reported its first yearly increase in petroleum consumption since February, proving the fuel-guzzling nation’s demand is back despite rising coronavirus cases.

Total petroleum demand rose 2.7% year-on-year in October, reaching 17.8 million tons, according to provisional data published by the oil ministry’s Petroleum Planning & Analysis Cell. Road fuels reached pre-pandemic levels, but it was demand for naphtha that really soared. Consumption of the petrochemical industry feedstock surged 15%.

The recovery by the world’s third-biggest crude consumer could help to consolidate this week’s rally in oil prices after a Covid-19 vaccine breakthrough. A strict lockdown in India in late March had crushed fuel demand, resulting in a sharp cutback in crude processing and operations at petrochemical plants.

Indian refineries have been processing flat out since the first week of November, and the country’s market for refined products should be “near normal” by the first quarter of next year, Indian Oil Corp. Chairman Shrikant Madhav Vaidya said at the Adipec conference on Thursday.

The world’s second-most populous nation went into its month-long annual festivals from middle of October. This is the peak demand season for everything from white goods to cars, and a busy time for diesel-guzzling trucks making deliveries.

Petrochemical plants, which use naphtha to ultimately make plastics and automobiles and consumer durables, started ramping up after months of idling as demand started picking up.

Some of Indian Oil’s petrochemical plants, which slashed operations by half during July-September on lower offtake, have ramped up processing use to as much as 85% in October, Sandeep Kumar Gupta, finance director, said on a Nov. 2 call with analysts.

Global oil benchmark Brent crude dipped below $43 a barrel on Friday in Asia but is still up more than 8% for the week.
