TABLE-India August oil imports rise 1.6% from July - trade

    NEW DELHI, Sept 27 (Reuters) - India imported about 4.7
million barrels per day (bpd) of oil in August, up nearly 1.6%
from the previous month, according to data from shipping and
industry sources.
    Iraq continued to be the top oil supplies in August,
supplying a record 1.3 million bpd oil, the data showed.

    Supplies from Saudi Arabia and Iraq made up nearly half of
India's overall imports in August.
    The Middle East share of India's total oil imports rose to
64% in August from 56% in July, while that of African grades,
led by lower shipments of Angolan and Nigerian oil, declined to
16% from 20%. South American grades were about 11% of India's
overall purchases, compared with 13.3% in July, the data showed.
    The following table shows India's imports by country. The
imports include condensate. Volumes are in '000 bpd.

    NOTE: The total may not tally as numbers in tonnes have been
rounded off after converting them into barrels using a
conversion factor of 7.3 barrels per tonne and dividing by the
number of days. Numbers for the previous months may have been
revised.
    The data includes some oil tankers that arrived in July but
discharged in August. It may also include some parcels that
arrived in August and discharged in September.
