ARA gasoline stocks down 6 percent - PJK

LONDON, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Gasoline stocks held in independent storage facilities at the Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp refining hub fell 6 percent to 788,000 tonnes in the week to Thursday, according to data from Dutch consultancy PJK International. Gasoil inventories edged lower by about 2 percent as demand rose in inland markets to fill local storage with winter grade gasoil. The partial shutdown of Shell's Pernis refinery for maintenance was resulting in an additional pull on stocks.

Naphtha stocks were relatively stable, while fuel oil rose and jet fuel fell.
