LONDON (ICIS news)--Refined oil products reached fresh historical highs on Monday on the back of crude setting a new record.
Benchmark 10ppm premium unleaded gasoline broke the previous record high of $1,000/tonne (€630/tonne), seeing at least 4,000 tonnes being traded at $1,002tonne FOB (free on board) ARA (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp).
Crude, which hit $114.65/bbl for June Brent and $117.40/bbl for NYMEX light sweet crude futures, rose on supply concerns after Nigerian militants sabotaged a major oil pipeline in the oil-rich Niger Delta region, which is operated by a unit of Shell Group.
