Asia’s cash discounts for jet fuel narrowed by a cent on Wednesday but remained near this year’s weakest levels of cash differentials amid a lingering supply glut, while the front-month spread shrunk its contango structure.
Cash discounts for jet fuel were at $1.19 a barrel to Singapore quotes on Wednesday, compared with a discount of $1.20 a barrel on Friday. Singapore oil markets were closed on Dec. 24-25.
