Russia Cements Top Spot in Crude Sales to China as Saudis Recede

The Asian nation’s imports of Russian crude jumped 61 percent to a record 6.35 million metric tons in September from a year earlier, according to General Administration of Customs data. That helped Russia retain the top spot for the seventh straight month. Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest crude exporter, supplied about 10 percent more at 4.28 million tons, while retreating to the third-biggest. Angola was the No. 2 seller. Source Bloomberg
