Asia Distillates-Gasoil premiums climb on demand uptick for physical cargoes

    SINGAPORE, Dec 3 (Reuters) - Asia's cash premiums for 10ppm
gasoil jumped for a second consecutive session on Tuesday,
climbing to a two-week high, buoyed by firmer buying interest in
the physical market and expectations for tighter short-term
supplies.
    Cash premiums for gasoil with 10 ppm sulphur content
GO10-SIN-DIF rose to 34 cents a barrel to Singapore quotes, a
level not seen since Nov. 18. They were at a premium of 19 cents
a barrel on Monday.
    The prompt-month time spread for 10 ppm gasoil
, which has remained in backwardation since July,
widened on Tuesday to trade at a premium of 40 cents a barrel,
Refinitiv Eikon data showed.
    Refining margins or cracks for 10 ppm gasoil
slipped 14 cents to $15.11 a barrel over Dubai crude during
Asian trade on Tuesday.
    Meanwhile, jet fuel cracks were at $14.78 per
barrel over Dubai crude on Tuesday, compared with $14.91 a
barrel on Monday.
    Cash differentials for jet fuel JET-SIN-DIF narrowed their
discounts to 31 cents per barrel to Singapore quotes on Tuesday,
compared with a discount of 36 cents per barrel a day earlier.

    OTHER NEWS
    - China is building more coal-fired power plants and

world's biggest greenhouse gas emitter that it was serious about
fighting climate change.
    - Oil prices edged higher on Tuesday, as hopes rose for OPEC

scepticism over the achievement of further reductions.

barrels next year, or by as little as 100,000 barrels, with the
wide gap creating huge uncertainty as OPEC officials gather this
