China's Unipec, an arm of Asia's top refiner Sinopec snapped up the lion's share of gasoil cargoes traded in Singapore this month, despite weaker domestic demand amid a coronavirus epidemic, according to trade data and industry sources. Unipec has bought about 6.4 million barrels of gasoil with a sulphur content of 10 parts per million (ppm) during the Platts Market on Close (MoC) process in Singapore this month, or 77.5% of the total volume of 8.3 million barrels traded in February, the data showed. Unipec bought the majority of these cargoes from PetroChina and Trafigura, starting at cash premiums of as high as $1 a barrel to Singapore quotes near the beginning of this month, down to the most recent purchase at a 20-cent premium on Tuesday.

Both the buyer and seller may opt for alternate discharge or loading ports respectively, provided they give 30 days notice before initial delivery, the pricing agency added.
MOSCOW/SEOUL/LONDON, Feb 12 (Reuters) - The gathering of the world's top oil traders, London International Petroleum Week, will be less crowded this year as the bulk of traders in Asia plan to either cut or cancel their Feb. 24-27 travel plans due to the coronavirus outbreak.

It was not clear how the delistings might be done, but the idea is part of a broader effort to limit U.S. investment in Chinese companies, two sources said. One source said it was motivated by the Trump administration's growing security concerns about the companies' activities.
