Fundamentals: Russia’s Energy Minister expects crude exports to rise this year as domestic refineries reduce capacity with oil output staying above 10 mbpd. This comes as a report reveals that Japanese crude imports from Russia may hit an all-time high this year after recording a 63% y/y rise in January. The same can’t be said for oil exports from Iraq’s southern terminal which are set to ease to 2.4 mbpd in April from 2.65 mbpd in March. Chinese implied oil demand climbed 4% in the first two months of 2015 compared to a year ago according to Reuters calculations. Meanwhile, a Libyan oil official has confirmed that a tanker has loaded 1 million bbls of crude at the Hariga port with another tanker expected to dock before the end of the week.
