Fundamentals: Russia reclaimed the position of top crude oil supplier to China from Saudi Arabia last month according to Chinese customs data which showed that it purchased 983,590 bpd of crude from the former-Soviet state and compares with the 961,710 bpd imported from the OPEC de facto leader. Increasing output by China’s smaller and independent refineries has helped drive the country’s exports of gasoline 71% higher on the year in September to 620,000 tonnes while diesel exports rose almost fourfold to 1.11 million tonnes. Meanwhile, Iranian oil officials have revealed that domestic companies are set to have a minimum 20% ownership in any joint venture with foreign corporations under the new oil contracts.
