Asia Distillates-Jet fuel cracks post weekly drop, cash discounts widen

    SINGAPORE, June 25 (Reuters) - Asian refining margins for jet fuel dipped on Friday, posting
their second consecutive weekly decline, as aviation demand in the region remained lacklustre
with a majority of international flights still grounded.
    Refining profits, also known as cracks, for jet fuel slipped 2 cents to $5.57
per barrel over Dubai crude during Asian trading hours, their lowest level so far this month.
    The jet fuel cracks have shed 5.3% this week.
    "The languishing Asian jet fuel spot market remains stuck in limbo, with no compelling
fundamental drivers to make a case for any bullishness in the near term," Zameer Yusof, senior
analyst at Refinitiv Oil Research said in a weekly note.
    Cash differentials for jet fuel JET-SIN-DIF were at a discount of 50 cents per barrel, the
widest since June 4.
    The front-month time spread for the aviation fuel in Singapore, which has
stayed in a contango since January 2020, traded at minus 35 cents per barrel on Friday.
