India's June Crude Oil Imports Lowest in Over 5 Years

India’s crude oil imports fell in June to their lowest level since February 2015, while year-on-year refined product exports declined for the first time in almost a year, government data showed.

Crude oil imports last month dropped about 19% from a year earlier to 13.68 million tonnes, down for a third straight month, data from the Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC) of the Ministry of Petroleum & Natural Gas showed.

“This is likely driven by not yet fully recovered oil demand and expectation that it might take longer to have Indian oil demand rising strongly again,” said UBS analyst Giovanni Staunovo.

“Together with higher crude imports at the start of the year, crude tanks are still well filled, reducing the need to import more crude for now.”

Fuel demand in India, the world’s third-biggest oil importer and consumer, fell 7.8% in June compared with a year earlier as surging coronavirus cases and rising retail prices hammered demand.

“India’s fuel demand recovery will continue to stall as coronavirus cases continue to skyrocket,” said OANDA senior market analyst Edward Moya.
