The July export total of 45.882 million barrels, released by the EIA on Monday, represents the highest mark reported by the agency, which tracks the data back to January 2009. It bested a previous monthly high of 40.807 barrels in June.

From June to July, exports to Finland rose 300,000 barrels, France rose 1.556 million barrels, Germany rose 302,000 barrels and the Netherlands rose 3.239 million barrels.

Exports to Italy and the UK, however, fell by 407,000 barrels and 435,000 barrels respectively.

The 7.144 million barrels exported to the Netherlands is the most the country has taken from the US since 8.744 million barrels in October 2013.

Comparatively, the July Netherlands exports are nearly as much as April, May and June exports to the country combined, 7.282 million barrels.

The surge to Europe slightly predated an upset at Shell's 404,000 barrels refinery in Pernis, the Netherlands, the largest refinery on the continent. A fire shut the refinery on July 29. It began the restart process on August 24.

US volumes rarely make it past the Adriatic, tending to discharge into the West Mediterranean.

July exports to Peru rose 698,000 barrels, Panama rose 316,000 barrels, Mexico rose 415,000 barrels, Honduras rose 359,000 barrels, Guatemala rose 1.101 million barrels, Brazil rose 629,000 barrels and Chile rose 1.645 million barrels.

Exports to Costa Rica and Argentina, however, fell by 1.224 million barrels and 557,000 barrels, respectively.

Meanwhile, ULSD exports to Singapore fell 1.151 million barrels to 1.089 million barrels in July.
