LONDON, March 26 (Reuters) – Angola’s state oil firm Sonangol released its May allocations on Friday, while demand remained depressed, particularly in Europe, due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
* Sonangol is offering two cargoes on a spot basis for May – a cargo of Saturno loading May 18-19 at dated Brent plus $1.00 and a cargo of Cabinda loading May 8-9 at dated Brent plus 80 cents a barrel.
* Oando did not return to window to offer its cargo of Pennington though the cargo remained unsold.
* The Suez Canal stepped up efforts on Friday to free a stuck mega vessel, after an earlier attempt failed to end a blockage that has lifted shipping rates for fuel tankers and disrupted global supply chains for everything from grains to baby clothes.
