North Sea Forties crude exports set at 21 cargoes in Oct - sources

LONDON, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Exports of British Forties crude will rise to 406,000 barrels per day (bpd) in October, up from 380,000 bpd in September, trading sources citing a loading programme said on Wednesday.

The schedule consists of 21 cargoes of 600,000 barrels each, up from 19 cargoes in September.

Forties, together with the North Sea Brent, Oseberg and Ekofisk grades, underpin the dated Brent benchmark price that is used for most of the world’s oil trades. (Reporting by Julia Payne, editing by Louise Heavens)
