BEIJING, July 23 (Reuters) - China’s diesel and gasoline exports surged in June as refiners shipped more refined oil products abroad amid robust refining margins.
June’s diesel exports were up 23 percent from a year earlier to 1.61 million tonnes, but down from 2 million tonnes in May.
Gasoline exports were 1.18 million tonnes in June, up 62 percent from a year ago, but down from 1.47 million tonnes in May.
China imported 4 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in June, down slightly from 4.15 million tonnes in May.
