Flows through Forties are likely to return to normal early in the New Year, the operator Ineos stated. That could undermine plans by the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and and other producers, including Russian Federation, who have pledged to extend production curbs through the end of 2018 to wipe out a global glut. Inventories excluding the nation's strategic reserve have declined more than 11 per cent in the previous year.

"China's oil demand growth appears to be accelerating", investment bank Jefferies said. The International Energy Agency forecasts that oil demand rose by 1.5 million barrels a day in 2017, and will increase further in 2018 by 1.3 million barrels a day.

Most other USA petroleum exports stay in the Western Hemisphere, but some of the top destinations for United States propane exports are Asian countries such as Japan and China. US crude oil exports in 2016 were 55,000 b/d greater than exports in 2015-a slower rate of growth compared with year-over-year changes in 2015 and 2014.

Oil prices posted solid gains on Friday, as analysts said a decline in USA production and commercial crude inventories lifted sentiment. The largest destination for US distillate exports in 2016 was Mexico, averaging 182,000 b/d, followed by Brazil (125,000 b/d) and the Netherlands (108,000 b/d).
