TABLE-India Essar's Aug oil imports from Iran rise 33.6 pct mth/mth - trade

NEW DELHI, Sept 30 (Reuters) - Essar Oil, the top Indian buyer of Iranian crude,
imported about 33.6 percent more oil from Iran in August compared to July, according to tanker
arrival data obtained from trade sources and ship-tracking services on the Thomson Reuters
terminal.
    Essar shipped in about 248,300 barrels per day (bpd) of oil from Iran last month compared to
109,300 bpd a year ago, the data showed.
    Essar's oil imports from Iran averaged about 170,200 bpd in the first eight months of 2016
compared with 104,400 bpd in the previous year, when the private refiner had to cut imports
under pressure from western sanctions against Iran's nuclear programme, the data showed.
    Iran's share in overall imports by Essar Oil in the January-August period rose to about 48
percent from about 30 percent in the year-ago period.
    Following are details of Essar's crude and condensate imports. Volumes are in 1,000 bpd:
