SINGAPORE, June 10 (Reuters) - Top oil exporter Saudi Arabia
is selling more crude to India in July as two refiners have
asked for additional cargoes, industry and company sources
familiar with the plan said, in part to make up for a loss of
supplies from Iran.
State-run Hindustan Petroleum Corp will take in
84,000 barrels per day (bpd) from Saudi Arabia, more than double
the 40,000 bpd it normally buys under annual contracts, they
Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd (MRPL)
will take in 86,000 bpd versus its commitment to lift 55,000
bpd, a company source said.
Other Indian buyers of crude from Saudi Arabia will lift
the same volumes committed under annual contracts, they said.
Supplies to most other Asian buyers are also likely to remain
