TABLE-India's Sept oil imports hit record 4.47 mln bpd - shipping data

NEW DELHI, Oct 12 (Reuters) - India's oil imports rose 4.4 percent in September from the
previous month to a record high 4.47 million barrels per day (bpd) as the country expanded its
refining capacity to meet growing fuel demand in an expanding economy, shipping data showed.
    Oil imports by the world's third biggest oil consumer surged 17.7 percent from a year ago,
according to ship tracking data and a report compiled by Thomson Reuters Oil Research and
Forecasts.
    India, which last year increased imports of African oil, has boosted imports from the Middle
East in January-September, with the region supplying about two-third of the country's imports
from about 58 percent last year, the data showed.
    India's Iran oil imports in the first nine months of 2016 surged about 91 percent to 412,000
bpd, the data showed. 
    Latin America's share of oil imports fell to about 15 percent from 18 percent a year ago
while Africa's share fell to 15.8 percent from about 21 percent.
   The following table shows India's crude imports by country according to tanker arrival
information. The imports include condensate. Volumes are in '000 bpd.
