Chicago tanks as Whiting returns

Dec. 2, 2016

Jet fuel differentials fell sharply across the US Friday, amid ample supply and a much stronger underlying futures contract after OPEC's decision Wednesday to cut future crude oil production.

S&P Global Platts assessed Chicago jet at the NYMEX January ULSD futures contract minus 6.25 cents/gal, a 5.25 cent drop day on day, as BP's Whiting refinery was back up and running and had the company active on the sell-side, sources said.
