Updated to Q1 2017
At the start of first quarter of 2017, the market in Asia remained well supplied with jet-kerosene, which was reflected in the contango structure of the forward market. Increased Chinese exports of jet-kerosene have weighed on the market. Cold winter weather in Japan and South Korea has buoyed demand for heating kerosene. Unplanned refinery outages and upcoming refinery maintenance in the second quarter could serve to tighten supply. In Europe, there is a steep contango in the ICE gasoil futures market at present and this is encouraging the storage of jet kerosene. An increase in ARA stocks has already been noted, with cargoes said to be coming in from South Korea. The barge market has been illiquid amid low water levels on the Rhine river. Water levels are expected to increase slightly in the coming weeks and it remains to be seen whether this will boost activity in the barge market. US jet fuel prices increased by about 57% in 2016, mostly following the recovery in crude oil over the course of the year. Prices will likely continue to follow crude oil in the first quarter, when demand is normally low. Exports should remain strong, maintaining healthy refiner crack spreads, which are up by 25-33% year on year.
Updated to Q2 2017
European jet kerosene barge and cargo spot prices declined during the second quarter because of a fall in upstream ICE Brent crude oil futures. The contango in the ICE gasoil futures market turned to backwardation halfway through the quarter, before recovering somewhat in mid June. This discouraged market participants from storing product to sell for future delivery. There were steady imports of jet from South Korea.
