Feb. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Crude shipments from Dansk Undergrunds Consortium, the producer part-owned by A.P. Moeller Maersk A/S, are scheduled to climb to six cargoes in March, one more than this month, according to a loading program.

Exports will total 3.6 million barrels, or 116,129 barrels a day, compared with 103,448 barrels a day for February, the plan obtained by Bloomberg News shows.

Copenhagen-based Maersk holds 39 percent of the venture, known as DUC. Royal Dutch Shell Plc owns 46 percent and Chevron Corp. has 15 percent. Maersk will receive four cargoes, Chevron and Shell will get one each, according to the schedule.
