Reuters: China's demand for diesel may rise again this year

According to a Reuters report on July 28 in Singapore, traders and analysts said that as the world's second-largest economy shows signs of economic growth, China's demand for diesel will rise again this year after shrinking for the first time in 2016.

The rising diesel demand may limit fuel oil export growth in the world's second-largest oil-consuming country and support Asia's near-eight-month high benchmark diesel profit margin.

Seri Paravikarasu, head of energy consultancy FGE "East Suez Oil", said China's diesel demand is expected to increase by 0.3% and 0.5% this year and next year after a 3.5% decline last year.

Paravikarasu said, “The various factors – the improvement of mining and industrial activities, the increase in commercial vehicle sales and road freight – support the gradual recovery of demand for China (diesel).”

Diesel, which accounts for about 30% of China's oil demand, is mainly used to fuel trucks and mining and construction equipment in China.
