India’s IOC picked up at least six cargoes of west African crude on Monday from Shell, Chevron, Exxon Mobil and Vitol, traders said.
Traders said these were likely all July loading although IOC had issued two tenders last week seeking cargoes for July
4-13 and Aug. 1-10 loading.
A few grade details emerged. Shell was said to be providing Forcados and Bonga, Chevron a cargo of Agbami and
Vitol another cargo of Bonga.
Around 30 July loading Nigerian cargoes were still available.
