Japanese oil refiners' run rate is expected to pick up as kerosene demand swells toward winter, constricting imports of gasoline, the head of the Petroleum Association of Japan (PAJ) said on Thursday.
But Japan's imports of crude are likely to stay at low levels through the end of this year, Tsutomu Sugimori, president of the PAJ, told a news conference.
