英国1-7月原油产量同比下降4%

原标题:英国1-7月原油产量同比下降4%

    中国石化新闻网讯 据石油新闻2020年9月24日伦敦报道,英国商业、能源和工业战略部9月24日在伦敦公布的统计数据显示,尽管面临新冠肺炎疫情,但由于取消维护使得原油产量保持“相对稳定”,7月份英国原油日产量同比仅下降了3%,为103万桶,前7个月下降了4%,为109万桶。

    统计数据还显示,英国7月份的原油和天然气液体出口量连续第4个月超过进口量,但差距已经缩小,出口仅比进口多了4%,为285万吨。

    纵然近几年来北海原油产量的复苏提振了贸易平衡,然而,英国连续几个月的原油和天然气液体出口量超过进口量,这是极其不寻常的。

    在包括产品在内的整体石油贸易方面,英国的进口依存度在7月份继续增强,进口量超过出口量55.3万吨,而在5月份英国成为了净出口国。

    英国商业、能源和工业战略部强调了7月份英国炼油厂的需求复苏,并指出,“本土”原油的使用量仍相对较高,这是受到了布伦特原油和西德克萨斯中质原油价格差异较低的推动。

    英国炼油厂7月份对英国产原油和天然气液体的消费量同比增长了10%,达到了82.8万吨。

    UK oil output dips 4% in Jan-July, import dependence resuming

    UK oil production fell 3% on the year in July to 1.03 million b/d, and was 4% lower over the first seven months, at 1.09 million b/d, as cancelled maintenance kept volumes "comparatively stable," despite COVID-19, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy said Sept. 24.

    The statistical release also showed the UK exported more crude and natural gas liquids than it imported for a fourth month in a row in July, albeit the difference narrowed, with exports exceeding imports by just 4%, at 2.85 million mt.

    Such a run of months in which the UK exports more crude and NGLs than it imports is highly unusual, even though recovering North Sea output had boosted the balance of trade in recent years.

    In terms of overall oil trade, including products, the UK's import dependence continued to reassert itself in July, with imports outstripping exports by 553,000 mt, after a brief flip in which the country became a net exporter in the month of May.

    BEIS highlighted a recovery in demand at UK refineries in July, noting also the use of "indigenous" crude remaining comparatively high, boosted, it said, by low differentials between Brent and WTI crude pricing.

    Consumption of UK-produced crude and NGLs by the country's refineries was up 10% on the year, at 828,000 mt.
