U.S. imports of Libyan crude resumes

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

WASHINGTON – United States’ imports of Libyan crude flows resumed in September after a halt last month amid earlier port closures, Thomson Reuters trade flows data showed on Monday.

According to Reuters, four tankers carrying a total of 2.1 million barrels, or 70,800 barrels per day (bpd), from Libya’s major port in Es Sider and other terminals will arrive or have already made port in Philadelphia, New York and Houston this month.

In August, U.S. East Coast refiners including Monroe Energy in Trainer, Pennsylvania, shifted to light, sweet Saharan Blend from Algeria to offset the drop in imports from Libya, Thomson Reuters data show.
