TABLE-India Reliance's Dec oil imports down 15 pct from Nov - trade

    NEW DELHI, Jan 23 (Reuters) - India's Reliance Industries, owner of the
world's biggest refining complex, imported about 15 percent less oil in December
compared with the previous month, ship tracking data made available to Thomson Reuters
showed.
    Reliance, which has a diversified crude slate and shifts purchases to maximize
revenue, bought about 4.5 percent more oil in 2017 at about 1.36 million barrels per
day (bpd).
    Last year, the private refiner shipped in about 49 percent of its oil needs from
the Middle East, compared with about 55 percent in 2016, while the share of Latin
American grades in its overall purchases declined marginally to 34 percent from about
35 percent in 2016.
    African grades' share in the overall purchases rose to about 11.4 percent in 2017
from 7.6 percent in the previous year. During the year, Reliance for the first time
bought oil from the United States.
    Following are the details of Reliance's crude and condensate imports in
January-December 2017versus a year earlier, according to the data. Volumes are in
1,000 bpd:
