Exports of North Sea Alvheim crude for January will be four cargoes of 780,000 barrels each, one less than this month, according to a loading program obtained by Bloomberg News.
A consignment from the December program will load from Jan. 4 to Jan. 6 and is not included in the January program, the plan showed.
Houston-based Marathon Oil Corp. (MRO:US) operates the field in the Norwegian North Sea. Loading programs are monthly schedules of crude shipments compiled by field operators to allow buyers and sellers to plan their supply and trading activities.
