Nigeria’s January crude oil exports to rise – loading programmes – Reuters

LONDON, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Nigeria's crude oil exports in
January are expected to edge higher, as cargoes of Forcados
originally scheduled for the end of December are not expected to
load as planned, loading plans showed on Tuesday. 
 A collection of loading programmes showed a total of 55
cargoes, or 1.64 million barrels per day (bpd) scheduled to load
in January. This compared with initial export plans of 1.63
million bpd in December, a figure that dropped after an attack
by militants stopped Forcados exports. December loadings of the
grade had been planned at 285,000 bpd. 
 The January loading plans were still missing some smaller
grades, but they included twice the number of Agbami cargoes,
for a total of eight in January, as planned maintenance cut into
December exports for the grade. 
 Exports of Qua Iboe, the largest stream, and Usan included
two more cargoes each compared with December, while Bonga and
Brass River programmes each had one more cargo than in December.
