Japan's Idemitsu Kosan and JXTG Nippon Oil and Energy have tightened control of accepting oil tankers in the wake of the outbreak of Wuhan coronavirus, the country's two largest refiners said today, amid some concerns over the potential impact on the inflow of crude and light distillate products into the country.

"We have tightened our control over accepting crude oil and products tankers in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak," a spokesman for Japan's second largest refiner Idemitsu Kosan told S and P Global Platts Friday.

The company's tightened scrutiny also applies to crews on board the tankers, the spokesman said.

Idemitsu, however, does not see any immediate impact on its stable oil supplies, he added.
