Nigerian crude cargo movements remained muted and a few small January programmes were still missing, Reuters reports.
Unipec sold its January-loading cargo of Nigerian Antan at the end of last week, though buyer details have not emerged. Offers for January-loading Nigerian Forcados cargoes were around dated Brent plus $1.50-$1.60 a barrel.
There was still no sign of January plans for Ebok, EA and Oyo, traders said. Roughly 10 December-loading Nigerian cargoes have yet to trade. January exports are pegged at 61 cargoes, down from 69 in December.
