中国石化新闻网讯 据烃加工网站9月16日消息 美国能源信息署（EIA）本周表示，尽管产量上升，但上周美国原油库存意外下降，馏分油库存再次上升。
Again Capital驻纽约合伙人John Kilduff表示：“这是一份看跌报告，尤其是在我们继续关注需求问题之际。柴油需求的下降令人不安，因为卡车需求一直是一个亮点。”

U.S. crude stockpiles drop unexpectedly, diesel builds
U.S. crude oil stockpiles unexpectedly fell last week despite rising production, while distillate inventories were up once again, the U.S. Energy Information Administration said this week.
Crude inventories fell to their lowest since April at 496 MM barrels in the week to Sept. 11, sliding 4.4 MM barrels, compared with analysts' expectations in a Reuters poll for a 1.3 MM-barrel rise.
Production rose for a second consecutive week, jumping 900,000 bpd of crude last week, to 10.9 million bpd, the data showed.
Distillate stockpiles, which include diesel and heating oil, rose by 3.5 MM barrels last week to 179.3 MM barrels, versus expectations for a 600,000-barrel rise, the EIA data showed.
"It was a bearish report, particularly as we continue to stare down demand issues," said John Kilduff, Partner at Again Capital in New York. "The drop off in diesel demand is disturbing because truck demand had been a bright spot."
U.S. gasoline stocks fell 400,000 barrels to 231.5 MM barrels, the EIA said, compared with analysts' expectations for a 160,000-barrel drop.
U.S. crude futures pared gains after the data, and gasoline and diesel futures also pulled back. West Texas Intermediate crude futures traded up $1.29 to $39.58 a barrel Wednesday by 11 a.m. EDT (1500 GMT), after earlier rising to a session high of $39.71 a barrel.
Crude stocks at the Cushing, Oklahoma, delivery hub for WTI fell by 74,000 barrels, EIA said.
Refinery crude runs rose by 709,000 bpd in the last week, EIA said. Refinery utilization rates rose by 4 percentage points, in the week.
Net U.S. crude imports fell last week by 66,000 bpd, the EIA said.
