While the Hong Kong Observatory has lowered the typhoon warning from strong winds signal T3 to standby signal T1 at 2:40 pm local time (0640 GMT), the wind was still strong, accompanied by high swells, market sources said.

"We can deliver in-port location but terminal loadings are still suspended, and pilotage has not resumed," a supplier said Monday.

Terminal and barge congestion is expected when operations resume.

"Loadings at the terminal will be jammed from Tuesday, barges are currently empty," another supplier said, adding that operations were expected to resume on Tuesday.

At 3 pm local time, Mangkhut was estimated to be about 720 km west-northwest of Hong Kong and was moving at about 20 kph, according to the observatory. It was expected to move across southern China and weaken gradually, it added.

At the Asian close Friday, 380 CST bunker fuel for delivery at Hong Kong was assessed at $464/mt, down $3/mt from Thursday.
