ARA gasoil stocks drop more than 5 pct in past week -PJK

    LONDON, Aug 24 (Reuters) - Gasoil stocks in independently
held storage at the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp refining and
storage hub fell by 5.28 percent in the week to Thursday, data
from Dutch Consultancy PJK International showed. 
    Stocks, which stood at 2.74 million tonnes, fell largely on
the back of lower regional production, especially with the
outage at Shell's 404,000 barrels per day Pernis oil refinery in
Rotterdam, PJK's Patrick Kulsen said. 
    Most units at the refinery have now restarted operations
following a fire that led to their shutdown on July 29, Shell
said on Thursday.
     Limited exports to Asia drove fuel oil stocks up by more
than 27 percent. 
    Gasoline declined by 2.23 percent with lower than average
export volumes to the United States keeping stock levels buoyed,
Kulsen said.
