  • independent refiners (teapots) driving demand -- drove demand before import quotas expire
  • last month, China said it will raise by 42% the oil import quota for non-state refiners (teapots) for 2019, as new refinery capacity is planned to enter into operation next year
  • China increasing more Canadian WCS vis a vis WTI due to $50 price spread
