The world’s biggest independent oil storage company, Royal Vopak NV, said that space for traders to store crude and refined fuels has all but run out as a result of the fast-expanding glut that the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak has created.

HONG KONG/SINGAPORE: The world’s biggest independent oil storage company said that space for traders to store crude and refined fuels has all but run out as a result of the fast-expanding glut that the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak has created.

"The available capacity on the oil side is almost completely sold out for our terminals,” Gerard Paulides, the chief financial officer of Rotterdam-based Royal Vopak NV, said in an interview. "For Vopak, worldwide available capacity that is not in maintenance is almost all gone and from what I hear elsewhere in the world we’re not the only ones.”
