据总部位于纽约的Energy Aspects公司石油产品研究主管Robert Campbell表示，这批货物不同寻常，成立于2008年Satorp此前被预计不会向美国出口RBOB汽油，因为沙特的汽油需求依然强劲。
Saudi refinery exports first gasoline barrels to U.S.
A refinery in Saudi Arabia has shipped its RBOB gasoline to the United States for the first time, a potential precursor for more deliveries to a region where prices are currently at seasonal three-year highs.
The 400,000 barrels-per-day Jubail Satorp refinery, a joint venture between Saudi Aramco and French company Total, said in its verified Twitter account that it sent the shipment of reformulated blendstock gasoline - commonly called RBOB - to the United States.
The shipment is unusual because when Satorp was founded in 2008, it was not expected to send RBOB to the United States, as Saudi gasoline demand remained strong, said Robert Campbell, head of oil products research at Energy Aspects in New York.
