TOKYO (Reuters) - India has overtaken Japan as the world's third-biggest crude oil importer in 2013, data showed on Thursday.
India imported 3.86 million barrels-per-day of crude oil last year, tanker arrival data compiled by Reuters from trade sources showed on Thursday.
India's imports were nearly 6 percent higher than Japan's customs-cleared imports of 3,648,372 bpd (211,716,710 kilolitres).
